September 01, 2019
Rachel was amazing. She squeezed [my daughter] in for an appointment so she'd be able to have her physical before school started and not miss her first practices. She was very thorough in her questions on [my daughter]'s health history and exam. Very happy with the care she showed.

She listened to all my questions and gave wonderful and detailed answers to myself and my children.

Rachel is always so interactive and great at talking to my kiddos instead of to me, except when needed.
