great experience all around

star star star star star

The nurse was wonderful, Dr. Shank is amazing, but the staff at the front counter were rude, dry, and left me standing around for several minutes with no assistance and no instructions. They should be welcoming and helpful or find somewhere else to work.

Highly recommend him.

Dr. Shank has continued to provide top quality care for our son. He is always transparent in our discussions regarding possible outcomes which although at times scary, is much appreciated so that we may be prepared for what the future could bring us. He does a wonderful job at making our son comfortable as well which is important!
