She is such a wonderful person! She treat both my daughter with respect and love. She also take her time and listen all my concerns. We love you Susan.
Thorough but efficient and kind.
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!
Susan (ARNP) excellent at getting us referrals to MD´s & specialists as needed.
The ARNP wrote down instructions for medication administration, which was very helpful.
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.
Dr. Paeth is an incredible doctor and the reason we have followed her around. Great care!
Susie is great! We look forward to our visits w/her.
Dr. Paeth was wonderful!
Susie took the time to answer all our questions and clearly explained the medications.
She spoke quickly, but not hurriedly.
A++ Great care! Love her!
The provider used too many medical words for my 12 year old to understand.
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.

"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."
