I believe Dr. Numrych is very knowledgable regarding pediatrics. He has a vast amount of experience and insight into the health concerns of children. However, he rushes through appointments and doesn´t attempt to really listen to the parents. I, often, leave feeling like I wasn´t heard and worried that he didn´t give much attention to the details of my concerns. Again, he is an incredible source of knowledge, but lacks rapport with parents and is far too focused on getting through the appointments as fast as possible.

Dr. Numrych is wonderful! Our only complaint is that his appointments are very short and always feel rushed. When we express concern about something with our child he assesses our son but doesn´t always provide feedback.

April 2017
Dr. Numrych always takes time to explain things in a thorough and accessible manner. He´s friendly and great at making our son feel at ease.

April 2017
The bedside manner has always been impeccable. One of the reasons we love our pediatrician and this office. Truly feels like they care about our children.

March 2017
We love Dr. Numrych! He´s so great with the kids and explains everything extremely well. His ability to instill confidence in me as a parent has been invaluable and he always respects my concerns.

March 2017
Dr. Numrych is an amazing provider. He is knowledgeable, and addresses upcoming milestones while discussing any concerns. I don´t know how he does so much so quickly.

March 2017
We like Dr. Numrych and are very confident in his care, but I always feel like he´s in a rush to leave appointments. I wish he gave more space for questions and concerns; I always have to stop him from leaving and tell him I have some questions for him at my baby´s well-child visits. Makes me feel like I´m inconveniencing him.

Dr. Numrych does a great job of addressing our concerns and including us in decisions. Our son also has said that he likes going to the doctor because he is included.

December 2016

October 2016
we are very happy with dr. Numrych as our doctor for our son. His attitude and approach was exactly what we were hoping for.

October 2016
We felt rush and because of my wife lack of English. My wife felt rush with our son due to maybe the doctor was behind?

September 2016
Dr. Numrych is fantastic. One of the best/easiest pediatricians I´ve dealt with.

August 2016
Seemed a little rushed

August 2016
We love Dr. Numrych! he is kind and warm to our kids and provides wonderful care for them. Sometimes he feels a little impatient with small talk and we feel pressure to get through the appointment quickly. We would recommend him to those of our friends who want a competent, scientific doctor who is sometimes rather brief and quick.

Dr. Numrych is wonderful, has great interpersonal & communication skills, and was/is very helpful regarding this child with complex issues that we recently took into our home.

June 2016
I think Dr Numrych is a very skilled pediatrician. Truly, he is an asest to the field. However, I often feel very rushed through the appointment and afterwards feel like I didn´t get all my questions answered because we were going so quick through the appointment.

June 2016

May 2016
We love Dr. Numrych and the care he provides for our daughter. He is patient and caring.

May 2016
My son was there for an annual exam. He is extremely uncomfortable with having his testicles checked during the exam. Dr Numrych could stand to be more sensitive to that kind of uncomfortable feeling. At times he comes across as non-empathetic.

May 2016

April 2016
Dr. Tom was wonderful!

Provider always friendly, personable, engages with kids, explains/repeats so we understand. Gives us options, pros & cons.

January 2016
Dr. Numrych is so knowledgeable, and always has the answers I need to care for my child. He always takes his time examining my daughter and makes sure she is comfortable. He makes sure I understand any plan we may have come up with, and addresses all of my concerns. He is an amazing provider!
