Susie always spends ample time with us at our check-ins & makes sure all of our questions are answered. She is well informed on our child!

August 2016
Susan (ARNP) excellent at getting us referrals to MD´s & specialists as needed.

July 2016
The ARNP wrote down instructions for medication administration, which was very helpful.

June 2016
I find her dismissive of my concerns in a way that´s patronizing, rather than comforting. it´s one thing to provide objective findings and information that demonstrates how the concern is relieved, it´s another thing to dismiss the parent´s concern first without including them in their thought process.

June 2016
Dr. Paeth is an incredible doctor and the reason we have followed her around. Great care!

May 2016

She spoke quickly, but not hurriedly.

January 2016
A++ Great care! Love her!

September 2015
The provider used too many medical words for my 12 year old to understand.

July 2015
She did her job but was the least personal of all the providers we have seen there. My wife & I both walked away sawing where where glad she was not our primary PCP.

On Patients
"After 23 years of working in pediatric health care the biggest satisfaction I gain from my work is through teaching the child and family about their health and heath care needs - whether basic parenting or complicated medical regimens."
