Fantastic doctors work here. The only gripe I have is sometimes the wait is long (with an appointment) but they are such amazing doctors here I look past it. My kids see Dr. Sternfeld & Dr. Schneider who are both great! Couldn't say enough nice things about them. We have seen most of the other doctors there for last minute appointments and what not and have never had a bad experience with any of them. I would highly recommend this pediatricians office to anybody who is looking.

I called to make a wellness visit for my son before he enters first grade and the lady was being rude about it saying his visit isn’t until June . I told her that the deadline for me to turn it in is May 28 . Then she asked me what was my insurance is and I told her it’s a combination of both . She told me I have to call my insurance first to double check. What she should’ve done is check my insurance under my social security or something . I booked my appt elsewhere where I am treated better .

Horrible service. I have schedule my sons physical appointments, check up and urgent care visits here since he was born. However I have yet to have a day where we are seen in a timely fashion. I understand running 10-15 min behind but an hour ? An hour and a half ?? You treat children ! Today’s appt my son is sick of course with a seasonal cold. Appt time was 10:40. My husband and son arrived at 10:30. It was 11:30 and they had just been brought back! Another 20 minutes and they still have not been seen. I called the front office to let her know that is horrible service but she could care less. These are our children, with fears of doctors offices already and you add to it by making them wait like this. Completely horrible and I of course will be switching providers- I encourage you to do the same if you value your time and your child’s care.

Front desk receptionist (one of them) was sooo rude! Her behaviors was unacceptable and inappropriate to one of the patients mother she was making fun of her in front of other patients I just couldn’t believe what I saw!!! Things like that should happened in Children Hospital, manager should be keeping close eye on receptionist behaviors! Disappointed!

We switched from the 4S Ranch office as this one was more convenient. We had a great first visit. Then after that only had bad experiences.Wait times were very long. The doctors were unavailable during listed hours (so if we came at the time posted on the website and on the message) meaning we could t even access the waiting room.Unless no other options I would recommend using another primary care office

They’re almost impossible to get a hold of. Any time I call it’s almost a guaranteed 20+ min hold time, just to talk to someone who will tell u someone else will call u back (which they sometimes don’t) doctors are late and overall it’s just giving “3rd party” care. MyChart isn’t much more helpful unfortunately.

Dr. Ashley Martinez is a very rude and condescending doctor. Refused to treat my son because we were in a car lied on her office notes of which we’ll be seeking medical amendment form. Dr Martinez wanted to see my sons throat through a zoom which is impossible I just needed a COVId test. Once I became upset Dr. Martinez continued to interrupt me and tlak over me and make accusations about the car is moving and the background being blurry.
