always a pleasure coming to this office. My child is always excited to see Dr. Filipink
She was very kind and pleasant and has a great disposition in helping and making the patient feel comfortable.
Dr Filipink is unlike any other doctor we have ever encountered. She remembers us when we come in, even though we only see her twice a year, she remembers small details, she doesn't make you feel like your child is just another patient to see. She takes her time and answers any questions you may have. We are so grateful to have found her two years ago.
the wait time to see provider was more than an hour past appointment time.
Dr. Filipink is always great with my girls from the way she talks and interacts with them, to them to how she talks with me.

First time meeting this doctor and we loved her. She really understood our concerns and took time talking to us.
She was so patient about our questions and gave detailed information for all of them.
Dr. Filipink was the most kind and thorough physician we have seen regarding my daughter's condition.

Dr. Robyn Filipink is an excellent doctor, so glad my girls have her. I would not want anyone else handling their care
We waited in the room for an hour before seeing her, but she was very thorough and did not rush. I appreciated that.
we love Dr.Filipink. she's the best!
We waited ALMOST TWO HOURS for our appointment.
dr Filipink is so down to earth and easy to talk to! she's a great doctor and resource for us in regard to our son
I love Dr. Filipink! I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatric neurologist. Having her as our daughter's doctor is well worth the hour and a half drive.
I know it is difficult to control but we waited for over an hour to see the doctor and part of that time was spent in a small room for 30 minutes with a 1 year old. I would have preferred to stay in the waiting room until the doctor was Available.
this was our first visit with dr Filipink since my sons neuro left the practice. she was absolutely amazing. she reviewed all my sons medical history in advance and was already up to speed before she entered the room. she spent so much time with us and was kind and explained everything to us. I feel very fortunate that she is the one taking over my sons care. he is in very capable hands with her and I would recommend her to anyone looking for the best neuro out there.
worst doctor I have ever met.she sad rude and due to her lack of knowledge about my daughters condition, she told me my daughter was faking everything and asked if I've ever had her tested for autism. my daughter is extremely intelligent and had more knowledge about her conditions than Dr Filipink did and I believe the doctor was offended by a 13 year olds ability to hold a mature, medical discussion.this doctor not only offended me and my daughter but she caused my daughter great emotional pain by the doubt and lack of concern.I'm disgusted that I had to sit in her office and listen to her.
Dr. Filipino was so great! She listened to our concerns and knew our child's complete medical history even though it was our first time there.
Everyone was wonderful!
The provider and her practitioner were very kind and approachable. They made my daughter and I feel comfortable with them. Both were very thorough in examining my child.
Dr. Filipink has been so wonderful to work with. She is extremely thorough and takes the time to make sure all of my questions and concerns are addressed. Dr. Filipink is incredibly kind, compassionate and caring. I truly appreciate everything that she has done for my daughter.
Everyone is amazing with my son. They are understanding of his needs & anxieties with being touched or approached.
We absolutely love everyone at this office and will continue to go her. She always welcome us with a smile and remember our child! She is so helpful and meet our son's special needs!
couldn't be happier with our experience everyone was amazing even the nurse
This is one of the best visits I've ever had for my Daughter. The doctor was kind , considerate and very patient with me and my Daughter. She was very informative and gave me resources to consider, if I'm ever need of them. We had a very good experience and I thank you for that.
