No complaints about the provider but the upcoming appointment notifications are excessive. We had completed online forms before the visit and were given a QR code to save time at check in. When we showed the QR code to the clerk, she wondered what it was for. Patient care at Children's is excellent. Numerous appointment notifications and pre-registration process is overwhelming especially if your child goes to two different clinics every 4-6 months.

Dr. Almazan is amazing. She takes the time to explain everything thoroughly and even shows you charts about your children and their growth on her computer screen. I would highly recommend her and I am bringing my other child to her also because we love her so much. She does.....she does an amazing job.
