the only bad thing I have to say the wait was too long

April 10, 2019

loved our provider... she was awesome! we did have a long wait but it was worth it and nurses came out and offered my child snacks and drinks.

dr pokusa was knowledable, professional and extremely attentive to us and our daughter. as was the nurse and optomotrist that came in before the dr.

March 14, 2019

The wait was horrible. dilated me daughter then we sat for 2 hours. I would have rescheduled had they told me the Dr was delayed. I understand unforeseen things happen, but don't dilate a child and then tell us it's going to hours. this nurse should've told us first.

March 13, 2019

The provider was excellent. However we had a 10:15 am appointment and were not seen until 12:30. The last time we saw this provider we were in the office for five hours. We like the doctor but will probably find another provider because of the extensive wait time.

March 06, 2019

Dr. Pokusa was wonderful with my son. This was our first visit and we are happy to continue with her as our care provider!
