I met Dr. Sarknas for the first time today and I liked her right away. She related well to my child and included him during the entire visit. She was knowledgeable and empathetic. I will ask her to continue as my child's PCP.
we are so grateful for Dr. Sarknas. My son shared with me that he is very comfortable with her and trusts her. We truly can't say enough great things about Dr. Sarknas. She has seen our son since the day he was born and we wouldn't have it any other way. We have seen other providers at Bass Wolfson and they have all been very kind but I'm most comfortable with Dr. Sarknas. Thank you for having her on staff!
my son is a difficult patient, and despite his poor cooperation, the nurses were kind and gentle. In addition to his treatment that day, my son began to unload a laundry list of medical concerns to the doctor, and she took the time to answer all of them.
Dr. Sarknas is a wonderful pediatrician who really listens to my questions, remembers our family and has provided great care.
Dr Clare is awesome!

excellent... Dr Sarkis is excellent
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.

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.

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.
