I am a pediatrician (specialist) and therefore I had the "inside scoop" on pediatric practices in the area. I was recommended to their practice (by several of my pediatrician colleagues) almost 7 years ago and have had only good experiences. My son loves going to visit Dr. Claus and he says that the shots don't even hurt. Once I called on a weekend about a dog bite that my son received and spoke with the pediatrician on call (he did not realize that I was a physician; he has since retired). He gave me advice. However, about 10 minutes later he called back and told me that he looked it up and changed his recommendation. I thought that it was great that he was readily able to admit a mistake and correct it promptly.
