They are always on time, very kind and amazing with children. I feel like they genuinely care about the kids and they have the kids best interest in mind, not just business. The whole team is wonderful from the time you walk into the door, until you meet with Dr. Pollard. He will spend as much time with you as you need and never makes me feel pushed into doing anything unnecessary. He always leaves the final decision up to us.
