What People Are Saying

I have finally found the one pediatric doctor/clinic I feel comfortable and safe knowing that my babies are being cared for the way that they should be! Properly checked from their blond little heads down to their tiny toes. This is a lot coming from a hypochondriac, overly paranoid mother. Dr. Medhat does not cut ANY corners and his brand new clinic is state of the art. You will not feel rushed as he is there to answer every last question you have without making you feel like the hypochondriac/paranoid mother that you may or may not be!

Dr. Medhat took the time to listen to my concerns and found the lip and tongue tie that had previously been diagnosed as reflux, overactive letdown, colic, and dairy intolerance. The procedure was quick and my son acted as if nothing had happened. The only thing he disliked was the numbing stuff before his stretches. Once we stopped that he was happy to participate in the lip and tongue stretches. I am so happy I didn't give up and found a doctor that would take the time to listen instead of rushing me out to see another patient. Worth the hour drive every visit.
