New Pediatric Patients

"Dr. Art is great Dr. He is very knowledgeable, smart, and he listens to you and doesn't judge your thoughts. When I told him I wanted to spread my kids' vaccinations he let me without any hesitation; that gives me peace of mind; you also don't wait forever to be seen; I like Dr. Art because you can tell he cares about his patients, something you don't see anymore in many doctors; he also created a Website that I love, he makes it simple for us mothers to read guidelines about our concerns". Ana Valdez - GOOGLE reviewer.
