The bed side matters of the doctor was great! She\'s always pleasant, knowledgeable and caring! GREAT DOCTOR!!! The doctor\'s assistant was difficult for us to understand and it seem so for her as well but she was friendly. The wait time to see the doctor was too lengthy especially when you want your child to get back to class.
