The doctor and staff were very professional and courteous. My problem was that we had to wait an hour in the waiting room (for a 9 a.m appointment). It is hard for a child (especially one with special needs--even a typical child) to wait that long for an appointment and be cooperative for a cardiological exams/tests. Especially with the bad flu season, and kids coughing everywhere in there.

the nurse who roomed us was exceptionally nice and caring with both of my children. very personable and explained what would happen and what to expect not only to us but to my six year old. Dr Drickmann was super, very nice and answered questions, showed she really cares

Dr. Drickman was wonderful! She was patient, compassionate and thorough and I was not hesitant to ask any questions. I would absolutely refer her to anyone needing pediatric cardiology care. Thank you!

very good experience. We waited over an hour to see the doctor, but the wait was worth it. She spent alot of time talking to my child and giving her practical examples of good foods to eat.

Dr. Drinkman is by far one of the best doctors and Childrens Hospital. She LISTENS to us.
