I have an 11 month old and a 22 month old that he is always available for. He's the best pediatrician your kids can have. I've used his emergency number a few times for my oldest and he responds promptly. Excellent excellent doctor. Is available by text as well.

I was truly expecting the best and I was grossly disappointed. I came in for a specific reason and was looking for a PCP close to home. Dr. Youssef was judgemental, rude, and lacked tact. He imposed his views and opinionsbased on small talk. I've never had a Dr be so unprofessional and he made me really uncomfortable. Here's only a few of many questions he asked in the short time I saw him: "Do you exercise?" No, not really. "So you're a couch potato." "How long are you married? Is there a reason you don't have children?" "When you have children, bring them here too so I can make money." "Do you have siblings?" Yes. "Do they have children?" Yes. "Bring them here so I can make money." "Do you have a cute dog? What type do you have?" Named the breed mix. "THAT'S NOT CUTE AT ALL!" I can't tell you how many times I said "that's not why I'm here". He talked quite a bit about irrelevant things and it was really frustrating. I won't be coming back here for any reason.

Very good and personable doctor. He seems to want to take all variables of lifestyle into consideration before diagnosing something which is a very good practice. I'm looking forward to getting his input on the things I need to do to take care of myself.

Our experience over all was good! Doctor was friendly and welcoming. Blood and urine test are taken directly in the lab. This is a bit inconvenient. I was hoping everything would take place in the doctors office. You can select anylab around your way which I guess is not too bad.

He was brash and did not update my child medical history card. We went for a well being checkin and my son had a mild fever which my wife and I was handling already. They insisted that it was a sickvisit and charged for a co-pay. My son was never charged for well being check up at my previous pediatrician. He didn't even do a full check up, all he did was weigh my son, check his heights, and his ears. I wouldn't recommend him.
