Our visit to the office was great. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They made my daughter feel comfortable when she was nervous about being there.

When we arrived it turned out that the schedule clerk told me the wrong day than what she had scheduled in the system. I went to the clinic clerk who went above and beyond to get my daughter seen right away. Even with all the confusion the staff were wonderful, patient, helpful and caring. They got us seen and the cast on my daughter's broken arm way quicker than I ever would have imagined given the circumstances. I am thankful that she got the care she needed without having to make the drive into the city again. They also scheduled the follow up/Cast removal appointment at the Monroeville office, which is a lot more convenient.

When driving 3 hours for an appointment for an opinion for someone due to your child pain. It would be nice if providers actually listened to patients symptoms and parents. go over medical history before you get there when records were sent. This could help diagnosis children.
