she was the kindest doctor I think we've ever had. We didn't know who we were seeing that day, and my daughter had to get shots. the doctor was so kind and down to earth that when the time came for my daughter to get her shots, she handled it well. I was also very pleasantly surprised to know she had a real understanding of my daughters dyslexia and she provided helpful ideas for her when entering school, such as getting a combination lock for her to practice with at home. that was a new experience for us, and I really appreciated her for mentioning it very carefully and tactfully. Best. Doctor. Ever.
hi! I would like someone to share this comment with Christine Cassesse. I have to say I was very pleased with our appointment with her. the time and care she spent with my twins shows the true heart she has for children and for those around her. there are people who have found their true calling in their profession and I believe she is one of them. not only did she share her compassion toward my children but also to me as well, regarding some recent losses and difficulties in my family. Christine Cassesse was in the right place at the right time, and her words were a timely blessing. I know the appointment was for my sons but I felt as if I could've talked to her for even longer, and would've been met with her kind listening ear. I wish all the best for her and I thank her for her amazing care of our children.
Chris Cassesse is a blessing! she takes time to explain everything & connect with your child as a friend. my son trusts her completely & she has done a world of good for him.
Christine is a wonderful provider. She is careing, warm and professional. She always seems to care whats going on in my sons life.
Dr. Cassesse is an excellent provider and I strongly recommend her to any child.
Christine Cassesse is really good at what she does, and monitors his medication closely so if she needs to change anything, she will always talk to us about it first, and then tells us if we need anything to call her immediately.

I absoultly love Chris ! she has been a life saver for us! 3 years ago my son was diagnosed with adhd ... thru trial and error we have finally found the right meds that fit my son perfectly ... Chris truly cares about my son
She always listens and cares. she continued to follow up since we weren't ready to medicate right away. she has always cared about my concerns and thoughts. she involves both parents thoughts in what routes to take doesn't just say "do this". She always reassures that she can be reached whenever seriously needed if ab emergency arises.
Chris is excellent and really cares about my child
Chris has been a blessing in our life. She has been fully 110% supportive to our needs. She answers questions and explains everything with detail. We are so thankful to have such a supportive practitioner to help us along as my son grows. Thank you!!
Chris was amazing- her student Michael was FANTASTIC as well!
This provider was not appropriate for meeting the needs of my teenager. She treated him like a child and talk down to me as a parent. She pushed the use of medication and did not explain fully the side effects and long term effects of the medication but insisted it was needed.
Christine is always very thorough during appointments for my son. She listens and respects parents as a part of a team when making decisions regarding medication, treatment plans, etc. and is always available to offer ideas or suggestions. She also has a great rapport with my son. I'm very grateful for her!
Very Good, great staff of employees and Drs.
Chris and staff are amazing, they care for the patient and the family as a whole.
Chris does a great job!
Chris is awesome. She knows my children's medical cal history and takes the time to diagnose properly.
Really appreciate Dr. Chris and the care she takes of my daughter during her visits. She listens intently and compassionately to the needs or the concerns we have. She is very personable, but also has a great knowledge of her field that she relays in a very practical way to her patients. We have seen great results from the work she has been doing with our daughter in the last year. Wanted to also mention Mandy who sees us before the dr. comes in. She is also very professional but does well at relating to her patients and goes above and beyond to accommodate scheduling and making your dr. visit a pleasant experience. Thank you for working hard to have a great staff of people working there. Rodney Miller
