All the doctors we have seen are fantastic, but we will drive to whichever office Dr Ben is at that day. And they are open weekends too-

Have been with Dr Ben for little over 2 years. My son loves him, he is great with children. Only issue I have is feeling rushed and not heard as a mom. Barely get to say what's wrong before being dismissed & out the door you go! Always does a great job treating my little man though!
