Google Reviews Of Our Pediatric Clinic

Mrs. Heather is the best. She remembers your child and knows what they need.
The staff is very nice and every time my baby is sick they always get us in the same the day. Ms. Heather is the sweetest and very knowledgeable. You can tell they really care about my baby. I can’t say enough good things about this office. From the front office to the back office they are all so nice and kind and they all love my baby. Thank y’all so much.
Amite location is a joke! My daughter was misdiagnosed! Heather told us she had hand foot and mouth which she did not have symptoms of, the next day she was diagnosed with pneumonia! We were treated as Covid patients and the entire visit was a terrible experience! Very neglectful even after a negative Covid and flu test! When I called to speak with the provider to let them know I was told that the provider would not be calling me back! Do not put your child’s health in this offices hands!
I brought my daughter here as a brand new patient and the staff was amazing! Switching doctors is never fun but they took good care of us and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a doctor!
10/10 would definitely recommend
