The doctor was slightly sarcastic, and it made me a bit uncomfortable. She needed to be strictly professional, not sarcastic.

The one thing that stands out to me is that when my daughter and I got in the car she said mom finally a doctor who listened to me and realized this pain is real. To me this meant the world.

I can't I can't say enough about Dr. Steward. She is absolutely wonderful really took the time just with us one of my toddler broke his leg and she she really made it her concern. My husband the same difficulty at work because he had to take some time off for my own health problems. And then our son. She (INAUDIBLE) adjust to help us out with the FMLA paperwork. She went above and beyond. I really can't say enough about her as well as the staff(INAUDIBLE)they are all just incredible. Nice people really know what they're doing. I appreciate the care you gave my son immensely.

Yes, I'm very satisfied with the way they treated my grandson. They were very great and what they do, and I'd recommend it to anybody to come to your facility. Thank you very much and have a great day. God bless you.
