“We love the practice and always speak highly of our experiences.  We primarily see Dr.Palma, who is great with my kids but also with me and all my "new mom" questions.  Little to no wait time for scheduled visits as well as sick visits.  Nursing staff is great and they do an amazing job getting vitals and giving vaccines to wiggly little kids.  Prompt with returning documents needed for daycare.” -Google Review


“My two youngest have had an excessive amount of illnesses and things happen,which would require a phone call or a visit. When my kids needed to be seen they have always been seen and given great care. Dr. John and Dr. Palma are who we see the most of but all the docs seem to be easy to work with and nice as well. If I have concerns, they are addressed and they call to check on their sick patients. Nurses' line is an amazing tool and even if you call 6 times in 1 day(which I've had to) they don't get aggravated and are still super nice, helpful, and professional. My daughter has been sick a lot lately and I called them at 1 am before I took her into the ER, and Dr. John called back and was really helpful and understanding...normally there is an "on-call" doc or nurse from some other location that will call patients back after hours but they call their patients any time day or night when they are needed. Really happy with them.” -Yelp Review


“We’ve been fortunate to have gone to Dr. John for our kids' medical needs for the past 10 years. The office staff is warm and friendly; as are all the doctors and nurses. I can’t recommend this practice highly enough!” - Google Review


“We love Dr. John. When our daughter was born he came to the hospital to check on her both days we were there. (Many pediatricians do not come to the hospital anymore, they leave it to the hospital staff, which was our experience with our first daughter).  He is always kind and thorough.  My older daughter sees Dr. Darlene, and she is fabulous too.  She makes my 3 year old comfortable, and she too is very thorough and attentive.  We left another pediatrician we were not comfortable with when our oldest was just over a year old, and just so happy we did.  We never wait long.  Both facilities are very clean and child friendly.  The staff are always attentive and accommodating.  If you are at all uncomfortable with your pediatrician, come here.  I promise you will be glad you did!” - Yelp Review


“The doctors here are caring and they always do their best to see my children when they are sick. Dr. John always makes the kids laugh and he is so great with them! I am very pleased with this office!” - Google Review
