This was our first visit and the doctor was very good with communicating the reason for my daughters visit. She seemed to have the expertise and knowledge and also seemed genuinely concerned. She made my daughter laugh and feel comfortable. They forgot to give my daughter the stickers they offered but all in all a good experience. The wait time was not long and everyone in the office seemed friendly.
