Dr. John is always so kind, knowledgeable & approachable. she's been so wonderful to our kids over the years.
She was very warm and friendly, talked to my daughter directly and was very sweet and engaging. Confirmed that it was a good idea to have her checked out for her illness.
she was very attentive and thorough. as new parents, she made us feel much more confident
excellent care, as always
We're new to the practice and first time seeing Dr. John. She was lovely, really appreciated the time she spent with us. We've also loved seeing Dr. Koenig, he's fantastic. Great experiences with the practice all-around!
Dr. John is always so tentative to any and all concerns I ever have and consistently always thorough. I could t have a better doctor for my children.
I told Dr. John how my son had red spots on his lip, nose, and hand because I wanted her to look at them to make sure it was not something we needed to worry about. instead of looking at these spots, she commented on his sore, bottom lip and told me it was impetigo. He's been biting his lips because they are chapped and sore. I assumed this was the cause for the lip. she prescribed an antibiotic cream that cost $50 with my insurance. This did not please me either.
Doctor did not introduce herself. Did not ask many questions regarding problem. She wasn't familiar with this office. She was nice though and apologetic after we were forgotten in the room for 40 min.
Dr. John has been our pediatrician since my children were born. She goes above and beyond! Always caring and extremely thoughtful. We truly feel blessed to have her as our pediatrician. Nurse Ruth and Nurse Judy have also been phenomenal through the years! Fantastic front office too!
as first time parents we felt comfortable in this office. the provider was very knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable with our newborn
Dr John always listens to child and the parent to get the full picture. She takes her time to fully assess the situation.
Dr. John is kind and always amazing with my son!
dr Martha John is excellent, very attentive and caring
Dr John is very thorough and caring. I saw her when I was a child. She truly cares about my children.
Dr. John, all her co-workers, and all the staff are amazing, friendly, helpful, and are wonderful with me and my boys!
Dr. Martha John is an excellent pediatrician
Dr. John is simply the best!
Dr. John put 15 year old my son at ease over an issue he was embarrassed over, yet very concerned. She was exceptionally respectful with him, which gained his trust and appreciation. Dr. John followed up with us on lab results in a very timely manner.
I like and trust Dr John for several reasons - she's thorough and takes time to get to know her patient. In addition to traditional health questions, Dr John also asks life questions, appropriate for my daughters age and concerns. The questions and advice are thought provoking for me and my teen. I appreciate her kind approach and guidance in the full health of my daughter!
Dr. Martha John is an excellent physician

Dr. John is thoughtful, great with my kids, and listens to all my concerns. we love and feel safe having her as the boys MD!
Dr.Johns is passionate and caring during every interaction with our children!
always the best care
I was very pleasantly surprised at the care and attention that Dr. John provided my child. I have always felt Dr. John was a great physician with good intentions. At this visit she took the time to talk to my child, build a rapport, make my child feel at ease, and addressed all of our concerns. Knowing we were in capable hands and the comfort my child received made my job as a mom so much easier. My daughter didn't scream when she got her ears checked and because Dr. John talked to her and asked questions, you could tell she was at ease in her hands. Thank you.
Dr. John is the best pediatrician for both my children. She pays attention, notices any significant aberrations from the norm and refers to appropriate providers, always makes me feel heard and acknowledged, and connects with the children in an authentic and caring manner. She is efficient, but never makes me feel rushed or moved along. She is a jewel among doctors.
The doctor was very kind and great with our daughter. However, our main concern was the flu since so many family members have recently tested positive. She was not given the test because of a stomach virus she had a couple days ago and that typically isn't associated with the flu. Her cough and flu symptoms started after the stomach virus so I think the test would have been a nice reassurance.
Dr. Martha John called twice to follow-up on my daughter's condition. This was so kind and unexpected. It really made me feel like she cared and worried about my daughter as much as I did. Her treatment during the walk-in visit as well as after the visit really were exceptional. THANK YOU, Dr. John
we were happy to have a female physician as my girls are teens now and prefer a female
