    The Dr explained everything well, was great with my daughter and took his time.

  • Jan 15, 2024

    Dr. W came highly recommended from a friend, and he has been the right fit for our family. He is open to questions/concerns and takes the time necessary to address them. Dr. W is well tuned into current and emerging treatments in [ ], and open to my questions regarding possible, less-mainstream, treatment options. He was not our first ped. [ ], but we will staying within his care for sure. I like to recognize Drs. nursing staff for their prompt attention to my "my Chart" messages, and also the prior authorization person/team for getting the ball rolling quickly as time for treatment is very important. Lastly, I really appreciate the use of "my chart" for inclusive and prompt communication. It is most important for us to be integrated in my child's care, and this system is great for that reason.

    My daughter has received outstanding care. The thoughtfulness, kindness, and sorrow conversation that we receive in this office is above and beyond.

  • Aug 11, 2023

    Dr. W truly cares about his patients which is evidenced by the amount of time he spends explaining things, going over instructions, and truly listening to his patients.

He goes above and beyond and we are truly grateful for his out.

  • Jun 30, 2023

    Dr. W was very kind and listened to my concerns about the medication vs nutritional therapies. I appreciate that. His nurse was very sweet and helpful. The checkout rep was friendly and helpful when she first couldn't find a n appointment within a month as req uested by Dr W. She made a call and was authorized to make an appointment using a different process. She learned something in that moment that will help others too.
