    The nurse whom obtained vitals and documented chief complaint was so sweet and genuine! She was very thorough with her documentation and even helped me push back my stroller as my hands were full as I carried my newborn. She made our experience very pleasant a nd welcoming! We appreciate Dr. Distasio's patience as we addressed several concerns during our visit and appreciate a diagnosis and potential relief for our baby girl! We felt our concerns were valid and heard and had an overall pleasant appt! Thank you!

    Yes! I can't remember her name anymore. She is a middle aged African American woman. But she was our nurse at the end. She removed [patient] [service]. She's usually our nurse at every visit. She's so friendly and beyond sweet to both of my babies! She always gives us tips for our little ones and they both adore her!
