Thank you for making this process and ease. I was impressed with the tech who tested my son – turning the breathing test into a video game was amazing! Dr. Bacon did a complete and thorough job with us. We had the test scheduled at eight and the follow up with the doctor scheduled for 930, but they got completed with both appointments by 930 by seeing us promptly -that was great!

Dr. Bacon is friendly, knowledgeable, and never rushes thru our appt. Works hard to make sure concerns are addressed in a timely manner, even if other departments are backlogged.

If you need a children's lung doctor, look no further. I have great respect for Dr. Bacon and the nurses there. They treat me and my family with a sincere respect and kindness that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else.

This was my last appointment with Dr. bacon after many years of being with her. (I'm now in college) things felt tense at times as I could tell she was thinking things that she wouldn't say, but she was always there for me, and it's been a pleasure. She remembered details about my life, and was always right when it came down to the nitty gritty medical decisions. It was sad to say goodbye!
