My 4 kids (well teenagers now) love Dr. Dixit and Tera.We've been coming here for 6yrs. They've become like family. They're always willing to help... and make themselves available anytime. I witnessed a parent being very disrespectful ( i.e. cursing in waiting room) to the staff and the office manager maintained her composure and handled the situation very professionally. LOVE YALLread more

I highly recommend this clinic. After having a horrible experience at another clinic this place was amazing. All the staff from the time I called to... schedule the appointment were very friendly and caring. Dr Tara was amazing and super friendly. She spoke with us on a personal level and didn’t stop until we were fully comfortable. It wasn’t one of those awkward uncomfortable dr appointments either I felt like we knew each other and was very comfortable talking to her. Highly recommend if you are looking for a new pediatrician that you can discuss whatever with and not feel judged!read more
