knowledgeable and pleasant as always. I wouldn't take my son to anyone else

Dr. Tyler-Kabara is always straight and to the point. She explores all options and keeps her patients top priority and communicates with everyone involved in the child's care. We really appreciate her!

Dr Tyler-Kabara is a wonderful lady.she recalled a prior encounter with my son and was also very informative about tree procedure she's about to perform on him.

Wait time for the appointment was 50 plus minutes. I have a child with low immune system. Not a safe environment for her to be in. The wait at Children's for anything is ridiculous.

very easy to talk with and always very upbeat

My husband and I traveled from Indianapolis, IN to come see Dr. Kabara for a second opinion. Her and her PA Jenna were amazing. They really took the time with us and made sure our concerns were heard and addressed. Even though we did not leave with a diagnosis per say we felt much better as we had a game plan in place. I thank them for their time and concern. Definitely glad we made the 6hour trip!
