Dr. Sarknas is such a great doctor... my daughter is always at ease with her, even when she is "disrobed" down to her undergarments or when she isn't certain whether or not she will be getting a shot. Dr. Sarknas has a naturally laid-back manner and openness to children acting like children. It is always a relief when I am able to schedule "short-term" appointments with her.
excellent provider just wish she had more availability for appointments
We always love seeing Dr. Sarknas. She is very kind and helpful. We feel that she listens to us carefully and treats us with respect.
Dr. Sarknas is wonderful!
LOVE LOVE LOVE her. Dr. Sarknas is the best.
I just switched my daughter to this pediatrician's office from the pediatrician's office she has been going to since she was born. I couldn't be happier with the care and concern which they showed and their recommendations for treatment.
Dr. Sarknas has been my child's care provider practically since she was born. We've couldn't have had a better provider for all of our daughters needs than Dr. Sarknas.

Dr. Sarknas really took the time to make my little one feel comfortable. He was really anxious and scared to go to the doctor and by the end of the visit, he didn't want to leave. She has been our pediatrician for 7 years now and we love her. She truly cares about her patients.
We love Dr. Sarkness. She treats the girls with respect and is very gentle with them. Have recommended her to my friends and family!!

Dr. Sarknas is amazing. I had my other daughter with me and she was kind enough to "check her eyes" at my daughter's request and made everyone feel at ease. She speaks to my daughters at their level, searching for answers, and not to me all the time, which I love.
Dr. Sarknas consistently goes above and beyond to provide excellent care for our children.

Dr. Sarknas is amazing! She always remembers my children, provides great information, and treats them with care. Cannot say enough good things about her.
We have no complaints. We're very happy with the care we receive from Dr. Sarknas and the team at Bass Wolfson Cranberry.
this was first visit with this doctor.
I have never had a bad experience with any of the Doctors or Staff!
been going there since both children were 3 days old and it is outstanding. never had a bad experience and had good advise and support when needed.
Dr Sarknas was able to explain Lyme's to my anxiety ridden son with ADHD in easy to understand terms. She was wonderful! Called me TWICE to talk about the results and left detailed notes for when I called back. I was very impressed.
we love Dr.Sarknas and feel confident in her expertise. She always takes time to talk to each of my children, listen, and offer suggestions where needed.
Dr. Sarknas ensured all of my questions were answered and was very helpful.
The nurse (L. Beck) and the physician (Dr. Sarknas) were so caring, genuine, and made my dtr feel very comfortable (despite feeling faint after immunizations). We will try and schedule our next appointment with both of these caregivers. Thank you!
We LOVE Dr. Sarknas. She is kind, compassionate, GREAT with kids, and very knowledgeable. Our kids range in age from 4 - 14, both boys and girls, and she is great at interacting with each of them in a way that makes them comfortable. She's a great role model for all four of them, but I especially appreciate that my daughters have someone like her (smart, professional, good at her job, and kind) to look up to. She's highly competent at both medicine and people skills--we're grateful to have such an awesome pediatrician.
Dr. Sarknas and nurse Danielle provided excellent care for my daughter during her 11yr wellness check, both were considerate and friendly, I am extremely grateful for their time, professionalism and care.
The appointment was for a newborn and paperwork was organized before we arrived. The process was quick and the provider answered allof our questions.
Much of the conversation was with my daughter showing her the importance of her own healt decisions. It was great to have her be that involved.
Dr. Sarknas is a pediatrician who is professional, competent and who has a wonderful bedside manner. She always speaks to both child and parent in a kind, compassionate way and takes the time to address any concerns.
Great experience every time with the nursing staff and Dr.Sarknas
Love Nurse Weinbrenner! Love Dr. Sarknas!
