Dr. Cassidy was very attentive to what my daughter and I told her, spent a lot of time with us, made sure all of our questions were answered. My child liked her a lot and actually has already told friends with joint problems that they should see Dr. Cassidy. I contacted Dr. Cassidy by email around 9pm last night and she responded back to me last night and encouraged me to contact her with any other questions or concerns. She expressed and demonstrated concern for my daughter's health and comfort. We have been very pleased with all of our daughters' physicians but Dr. Cassidy is definitely a favorite.

Dr. Cassidy is one of the most genuine and caring providers we have ever encountered. She has been a God send for our daughter, and she has weathered some difficult times with us throughout the past year since our daughter was diagnosed with JIA last May. Our daughter trusts Dr. Cassidy, as do both my husband and myself, and we respect her medical advice and the knowledge that she is able to share with us. She is so compassionate and caring, and the rapport we have with her means so much to us. We are grateful for everything she has done for us and for our daughter.
