Wait times have been 1-1.5 hours after the normal scheduled appointment time.

We waited almost an hour in the exam room for the doctor. This is far too long for a small child to sit in a room waiting.

When we found out our son had a Dermoid Cyst on his brain we were devastated. The staff at CHP was very knowledgeable and confident of a positive outcome. We had the best of care as usual. We are always well taken care of at CHP. All the doctors and nurses are wonderful!
