When I first took our two boys to her, we were expecting our third and now we have four boys, she attends to them all. I originally wasn't sure what to think of her, I am very well versed in child care issues and we had a few disagreements, however, as time as gone by, my respect has grown because she is skilled as a PEDS doctor, and she has a subtle sense of humor if you tap into it, which is good when you are dealing with kids. Being, likewise a person who is curt, I can see where people would confuse her abruptness with rudeness, however unintended I believe it to be. (I would like to point out that she has since moved on from the # given to 818.790.6300. Everyone's experience may be different, but for this hard to please father, it has been good.
