always good experience never bad!
We love Kristi, she is always helpful, caring and understanding. She is awesome with our daughter too.
Dr. Schumaker was polite but when it came to addressing my questions or concerns, the way she presented the answers was in a way that it also made me feel stupid for asking the questions. Her body language was also a little off putting. It was almost like she didn't want to be there? Like I said she was polite, and she answered my questions, but I would've much rather of had our primary doctor.
Kristie has been a part of our crazy hectic lives since our boys were little. In a family of 2 sets of twins the levels of chaos and sheer noise can intimidate the faint of heart. Kristie is always caring and compassionate, unfazed by the drama of twins and a stressed out babbling mom. She gets them as individuals as well as respects "twin nuances". so she is able to treat them by paying attention to subtle clues and never ruling out the fact that we often have a "zebra and not a horse" in our family. I trust her medical opinions without question ( though she has answered a million from me) and I am grateful for the consistency, care and compassion she has brought to our lives.
very helpful and compassionate
Very knowledgeable physicians, very friendly staff, and flexible appointments.
I selected 'never' on several simply because it was covered in the appointment. I had no issues with the care provider with regards to this visit. I'd rate it overall as a 10.
Everyone was very helpful and we did not wait long at all.
I was very pleased with Kristie.
experiences have always been good. they are attentive and kind.
She is excellent. very nice and happy to see my son now that he's 15 and twice her height. The nurse that brought us to of the room was as sweet as could be and remembered us from all these years. Just like the PA did.
The experience was acceptable.
Kristie was wonderful with my child and answered all my questions!
she listened to everything I had to say, and gave good advice. She was wonderful with my daughter. Have seen her a few times and every time is a good visit.
We always enjoy having Kristie. She always goes over everything and answers any questions we have.
We waited an hour in the examining room before we were seen.
Have been using this care provider since my children were born....always a good experience and would not go anywhere else!
always excellent care
kristie is the best !!!! wait time is longer than expected though.
I have had nothing but good experiences with our child's care provider.
Everyone is always very friendly and professional. Always able accomidating
My child loves seeing Kristie. She feels very comfortable around her and being a teenager that is hery important to her/us!
I was happy with our visit
I was pleased that I was able to get an appointment so quickly, and that when we arrived, the wait time was minimal. We were given thorough instructions on how to care for my child's injury.
kristy was awesome today & even answered questions I had about my other child that wasn't being seen today! she was so helpful and understanding :)
Always good visit and attention to my child's Heath care needs
she put not o only my sons mind at ease but mine also
I took my child in for a two year check up and explained that she wasn't feeling well at all. puffy eyes, sore throat, runny nose and just seemed agitated. the provider BARELY even checked her out at all which resulted in me taking my child to the emergency room two days later because she had a double ear infection and chest congestion that the ER doctors said she definitely would've noticed and could've prevented had she been more thorough.
We always have a positive experience with kids way pediatrics
Dr. Duffy and her staff are a great team & we wouldn't want our children going to any other provider!
Kristy is very personable and easy to talk to.
had a good experience
Really like Kristie. did not like waiting 35 minutes past our appointment time to see her.
I really like our provider. I didn't like waiting over 35 min after our appointment time.
Aways have a good experience with the care providers.
Our provider was amazing, we do t usually see her, yet she made us feel very comfortable and was very knowledgeable.
i have always had wonderful service and care from the Kids way staff, whether it was Dr Duffy, Dr Samantha(whom both my kids adore), Dr Christy and Dr Frank. my kids have been patients here for over 6 yrs
love, love, love everyone at this pedicure office
my appointment was at 1:45 and she was seen by kristi around 2:50. I think that was a little ridiculous.
My biggest issue with CCP Kid's is that they are never on time with your appointment. We always have to wait well past their appointment time.
Always get great care, love this office!
