This pediatrician is very cautious and thourough. He never makes me feel silly for asking questions and he is patient. He has a good repore with the kids and all the crying doesn't phase him. I do have problems getting appointments with him since he is so popular, but persistance pays off with the staff. They have several offices and I'm willing to drive to see him. During sick visits you can wait a long time if you're not there right when they open (8 am or 2 pm). Scheduled appointments go faster. The nurse practicioners there are ok, but I usually prefer to see the doctor.
