Dr fletcher has always been an amazing pediatrician over the years! He’s always noticed any little thing that could have probably easily been missed... by anyone else. I’ve always trusted him with the health of my children and I always recommend him anytime anyone asks about a local pediatrician. Plus, his staff is great too! He’s very sweet and good with kids too and makes my children feel very welcomed and comfortable.read more

My son has been going to Children's International since he was 3 months old. Dr. Hernandez saved my sons life then cause he stopped breathing. At... that time I was taken my son to Slidell Louisiana. Now he goes to see Chris in Picayune. I have never had any trouble with any of the doctors. When I need a specialist I will have one at Children's Hospital. And I'm thankful for that cause my son has several medical problems. So {C DUDE} if you didn't get your feelings hurt so easy you would see that (lady with brown hair) Molly wasn't being rude and that all the girls that work in there are not a bunch of teenagers. But hard working moms.read more

I’m really happy with this clinic. Christopher Fletcher is a provider who listens to his patients and thoroughly checks every complaint. Happy to... refer you to specialists when necessary. The clinic itself can always get my kids in for a visit and we’re never double booked or stuck waiting for an extensive amount of time. My only complaint is they don’t see adults. I wish I could find the same level of care and responsiveness for myself.read more
