visits are okay. Doctor is good, but could be more social with casual. No visit should have a time limit between doctor and patients. When setting and appointment, its okay to go on line and set one, but when your child gets sick at random moments or time, you should be able to have the doctor available or on call nurse with the next available doctor to help. Never should you have to get that the doctor has no openings till the following week.

we showed up 2 times before our actual appointment. the first time was not a great experience the receptionist was rude to us bc our appointment was on the next day, but when I called to confirm his appointment I was told the 23 when his appointment was on the 24. I showed up on the 24 and was checked in and the dr had taken the day off. I did not receive a call bout that being postponed.
