I really enjoy our pediatricians. Dr. Guyton is easygoing, reassuring and meticulous. Dr. Cardona is energetic and innovative, but careful. The remainder of the physicians and staff are also conscientious and observant.
I have two special needs kids and they always take the time and energy to understand what I'm after and guide me appropriately. That means I have to wait sometimes, but they are worth the wait. They have been there for me to rejoice at my kids abilities and gently support me when things have gone wrong. We have had many instances where we've faced life-changing medical news and I can't think of anyone who could deliver that news with more hope and care than this group. Whether it's the mundane developmental information or a serious issue they are always consistent and gentle, with a very low panic threshold. Because they don't overreact, I can act rather than react--which is much better for me and my children. I also know that they aren't likely to miss much, which keeps me from having to worry too much.
They are not intimidated by challenging technical questions, but I find I don't need to ask as many questions because of their thorough preparation. We have many different specialists and our pediatricians regularly do what they are intended to do: help us sort out what is important from what is trivial. I'm hard on doctors and they not only rise to the challenge, but they support me both technically and emotionally.
The practice is also large enough and broad enough to meet our needs at any hour of any day. More than once they have gone above and beyond the call to help us out in an emergency. I’ve never had a single insurance issue with them. They treat my kids like they were their own.
Out of all the doctors we see (and there are probably a dozen or more we see on at least an annual basis) it is comforting to know that the ones we need to see the most are the ones that I feel the most confident about. This group was recommended by a close family friend. That family has been with this practice for nearly 16 years and raved about them. I am so grateful to them because even what they said couldn't describe how great they are.
