I love the stuff they are so helpful. Everyone sits down and explains whats going with your child's health/ plus if the dr is going to be late they tell you which is hardly ever but you are not just sitting there. Ms Hurst cares about her kiddos. When she talks to you she is not talking down to you. She is the best. I love this place. Now the other Dr is also on point as well she is so sweet. She pays close attention to the care that she gives. She knows when your child is hurting even when they arent showing it. This office is Amazing and the Doctors are WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!

Dr Hurst treats my babies as if they were hers. She doesn't look at them as numbers or do this as an act. She tells you the truth and what to look out for. She is honest with you, What I respect the most is if she does not know she admits she doesn't know but is willing to ask for help.she will do everything in her power to help her baby and I am forever grateful for that
