Dr Val is always patient with myself and my three children. they're always restless in the office, and she treats them kindly and take to them in ways they understand. she listens to me as a parent and makes me feel involved in her decisions on diagnosis.
Doctor is friendly, professional and compassionate.
Dr. Val is always extremely attentive and helpful when it comes to my son's health. Everyone in the office is awesome and helpful. They really take their time to give your children the best care.
only good experiences over last 2.5 yrs of taking children to this office. very impressed and have recommended many
I am very pleased with my last visit. I like my children to see Dr Valerie Vukeic more often at visits
Dr. Val always spends a lot of time examining the kids thoroughly, answering our questions and reviewing their records. We never feel rushed and all of my kids, and myself, really like and trust her. I think she is a phenomenal doctor.
Unfortunately there was a longer than expected wait in the room and we were seen by MD 1 hour after our scheduled appointment. It would be helpful to know you would be waiting longer and offered books, coloring books etc to pass the time in a confined space.
as a first time mom I have a lot of questions and never feel silly to ask them
no wait time
Overall, We love Dr. Val. Very educated, smart, knowledgeable, loving and understandable towards my kids, couldn't ask for a better Dr.
Always have a good experience Tara the nurse/assistant always remembers my children and makes them feel comfortable and Dr. Valerie is always thorough and listens to all my concerns even the small ones.
Dr Val is awesome!
Dr. Vukelic is wonderful!
Dr Val is an absolute amazing Dr. She is an asset to this practice.
absolutely love Dr. V. Staff is very pleasant too.
Dr.Vukelik is an excellent doctor. She really cares about her patients and their health concerns. She explained things to me that I was unsure about from other visits to a specialist that my daughter sees. And she spent a lot of time talking to my daughter about what she can do to try and improve the health issues she has.
our experience with Dr Vukelic and staff was excellent, the doctor takes the time needed with you for your visit and the staff including clerical and clinical were professional, kind and awesome
I love my daughter doctor, She is very nice n helpful, She talks to us n explains alot of stuff that we had questions, N the nurses are very friendly n i feel comfortable going in there know that my daughter is in good hands.
this facility and all staff at the facility are simply amazing. always very helpful and understanding of my concerns for my child.
we recently switched over to this office and one appointment has made it very clear that I made the right decision I am very thankful for the steps that Dr. V has taken already and the care that she is giving my daughter
Dr. Vukelic was wonderful as always - she explains why she would recommend certain things like weaning from a bottle or a pacifier but isn't pushy and allows me as the parent to make the final decision about when my child is ready for it.
Dr. Vukelic is an extremely caring, prompt, compassionate, and thorough doctor and I would not prefer any other doctor with my children. She has provided care for both of my children over the past 4 years, and no other doctor has ever taken the time that she has with them, and put forth the effort that she has. My son has a wide range of problems from autism to ADHD, bowel and even legal, and she has always given the best possible care, advice, and referrals possible. She is an amazing doctor.
She is very professional and polite. very knowledgeable and helpful.
I cannot say enough good about this doctor and her staff. I highly recommend this practice all of my friends.
Dr Val and her nurse Tara are wonderful!
Dr. Val is good at communicating with the child as her patient and including the parent.
She was wonderful. She spent a lot of time with me and my child discussing routine care and answering questions. She gave me additional written information to go home with. She was kind and thorough.
Dr. Val, Tara, and Melissa always take the time to properly address my concerns about my children's health and well-being. They are thorough and respectful and always explain things in ways that we can commonly understand. I always gladly recommend Children's Community Pediatrics in Mt. Pleasant to friends and family who are seeking a new pediatrician.
She is always very thorough each time we see her. I appreciate the fact that she listens carefully to what I say and never 'blows me off' when I bring up a concern. She is great with both of my sons, who have very different personalities and I always feel confident when I leave that we have decided on the best treatment for their ailment.
Dr. Valerie knows my child when she sees her, she takes the time to actually talk to both of us, answers our questions, is very friendly and knowledgeable and shows true concern when we are there. we are glad she is our pcp!
Love the doctor and the staff. so glad am office in Mt pleasant opened. Makes it so convenient.
Dr Vukelic is a caring doctor and takes time with you and listens to your concerns
Valarie was very attentive to my child's needs and seemed extremely knowledgeable.
Got an appointment within the hour for an acute visit. That was very much appreciated!
