This provider Dr. Albert, was personal with my son. He talked to him, made him comfortable. At 11 years old he is a little bit afraid of what he might find out ,and Dr. Albert made him feel very at ease, reassured him that everything was going to be okay, talked about some people that he knew that were related to my son's school, which made him feel like it was somebody that he had known longer than just for the visit. I really appreciated it, he was very matter of fact with us, he also gave us good information, he gave us things to think about for our next visit, and went beyond what we thought the experience was going to be as far as evaluating my son's situation. Thank you.

Dr. Albert has always been really great with my son and his care. He takes his time with my son. He's very nice. He is patient. He even makes my younger children feel special when they're there, making sure that they're enjoying the visit too even though it's not for them. He's very friendly and very thorough and he's also very professional, we enjoy coming to see him every time.

The staff were incredibly helpful and thoughtful and kind. A great bed side manner my daughter was very comfortable. I was comfortable and the calmness allowed us to be calm in a sort of nerve racking situation cause I didn't I didn't know what to expect. So and then the doctor was very entertaining to say the least he was able to just sort of make jokes and and do things in in such a way that it made my daughter comfortable and again myself comfortable just because of the nature of of what we were there for. So anyway great great job team
