Patient Reviews
Feb 05, 2022
I've been searching all day for a good pediatrician for my 6 month old, as we haven't had much luck with the last two. I checked the evaluations given to Dr KRISSA GEORGE and as she appears to be very well evaluated by clients and I live practically next to the clinic, I decided to take my son there. As my wife and I do not speak ENGLISH very well (we are Brazilians and speak PORTUGUESE), we expected that it would be like most of the time a rude treatment and without much patience. Such was our surprise, we were extremely well treated from the receptionists, nurses and not to mention Dr KRISSA a love of person and tremendous professional. Already in my first contact by phone, they provided an interpreter and there at the appointment, too!! Dr krissa provided a translation system which we saw online the translator was nothing over the phone. Simply a wonderful and competent professional, she takes all the doubts of the customers with all the patience possible! It will certainly be my so
