Dr. Svendsen is the only pediatrician we wanted to work with for our new baby. She has treated our other child since birth, through heart defects, stomach surgery and an autism diagnosis. We were so glad to be able to stay with Dr. Svendsen as our family grows. We were also very reassured by her thoughtful answers to some of our questions re: testing our new baby for defects or genetic issues and whether it's safe for me to breastfeed on specific autoimmune medications I take.

Dr. Svendsen is always so attentive and patient. Our daughter is special needs so her appointments tend to be more involved, but Dr. Svendsen never makes us feel rushed. She always takes the time to answer our concerns, explain her treatment decisions and follows up with us if we have a question regarding a therapy or medication.

Both my daughter's have been under the care of Dr. Svendson for years. We absolutely love her and recommend her to everyone! She is patient and I never feel rushed. She makes my daughters feel important, heard, and they never complain about having to go to the doctor. She has given them a healthy view of the doctor-patient relationship that they will take into their adulthood.
