Dr. Sarknas is very approachable and open to questions. She knows the current recommendations and explains them well. She has established a rapport with my children. Her pleasant demeanor is very appreciated. When she is not available, her colleagues cover seamlessly.
Dr Sarknus and all of the staff at Bass Wolfson have been unbelievably helpful, friendly and courteous. I refer friends every chance I get. I am very pleased that we made the move to Bass Wolfson about 7 years ago. And coming from a mom with a child that has a rare genetic condition, that should speak volumes to the care that these folks provide. A huge thank you to everyone there - you are all fantastic!!

Thank you, Dr. Sarknas went above and beyond to answer all my questions
I had a lot of questions & Dr. Sarknas took the time to answer all of my questions. I never felt rushed. it was a great appointment!
The staff has provided excellent care for my children
Dr. Sarknas has always taken great care of my children. She is genuinely interested in their health and either remembers or takes the time to read their history before seeing them.
I don't think I would go anywhere else for my child's health concerns. I've always thought my care provider had the best interest in my child's care.

I've never had a bad experience at this office.
The staff is always great and I love the way that they let my daughter explain what is wrong, even when she is long winded.
We LOVE Dr. Sarknas. She is so great--with kids and parents alike.
Dr. Sarknas took her time to talk with my daughter and made her feel comfortable to ask questions. This is important to us because she is a pre-teen.
I have 3 children and we have seen most of the doctor's on staff at Bass Wolfson Pediatrics. They have all always been amazing with my kids and easy to talk to: clerks and nursing staff included. They are always courteous and show great concern for my children. I cannot think of any bad experiences that we may have had with this practice. I work at a childcare facility, and I always recommend our pediatrician's office to current families at the center and especially to those who are new to the area and looking for a quality practice for their children.
Dr sarknas is amazing. We've been seeing her for almost 5 years and never had a complaint. She always asks about the whole family not just the child being seen. She remember details about our family and genuinely cares about my kids.

Dr. Sarknas took the time to listen and drew upon her experience with our son to help us make some difficult decisions. We appreciate her time and commitment to our son.
great place to take your child! wonderful doctors and nurses!
This was our visit first visit to this care provider, we are very new to the United States and I am very impressed with this provider and the facility.
Both Dr. Sarknas and the nurses did an outstanding job when trying to alleviate my child's fear of shots. They spoke to her on a level she could understand and explained why she needed them.
I like Dr. Sarknas, especially her manner. I like that she referenced the last time we saw her. It made me feel like she did her homework and that we were more than just a name in an appointment slot.
we love Dr. Sarknas
I can not say enough good things about Dr. Sarknas. Our children love her and trust her when we are in the office. She truly takes the time to listen to any and all concerns we have and addresses them to put us at ease. She continues to impress us 4 years later.
Dr. Sarknas was very attentive to the concerns we discussed about our daughter. She was very caring and sensitive in speaking with our daughter about the issues and never acted rushed to get out of the room to her next appointment.
We love Dr. Sarkness. She always shows care, concern and understanding. She is always professional, but shows a wonderful personal side during each and every visit.
I have recommended Dr. Sarknas to many friends!
