Dr. Bacon is rude. Every time we go to visit her. She always has something nasty to say, acts like the parents are not intelligent and are not educated and she doesn't listen to our opinions are how we feel.

Dr. Bacon has been absolutely amazing! We look forward to our yearly visits with her.

The lady that checked us in was very rude and copped an attitude when I corrected her for mispronouncing my daughter's name. The Dr, Dr. Bacon was not friendly or nice like she had been in the past. She was very rude and even my 10 year old daughter noticed the change and said that she didn't have to be rude. I'm currently looking for another Dr to treat my daughter never as long as my child.has been seen at children's had I been treated with such disrespect.
