Dr. Pierce was very attentive to my daughter’s concerns. She offered realistic/ non prescriptive suggestions to help.
Dr. Pierce is the absolute best.
Dr Pierce was fantastic! We were in and out. She was able to diagnose my child and exhibited great patience with her. Also, she took my insurance into consideration to help keep costs low for prescriptions.
She was very personable and very good with my newborn. She is also very knowledgeable and understanding. She takes her time and answered all of my questions! I'm very glad I found her.
Great spirit in Dr. Pierce! She cares, and that has been missing in some of our other doctor visits. Happy to have met her and hope to continue my children’s visits with her for the many years of their life.
Dr. Pierce was very inviting and she made my son feel comfortable.

Dr. Pierce was great! She took her time with our daughter and answered all of our questions. She made the process of checking in as a new patient super easy. Plus, when it came time for shots she made our daughter feel comfortable. I would highly recommend her!
My children loved her
Dr. Pierce is a wonderful pleasant very informative doctor. She takes the time to listen and comes up with a game plan for issues that you may be dealing with when it comes to your children.
It was quiet and not crowded. We did not have to wait. The receptionist explained the process before we went into the office and Dr. Pierce took the time to explain everything we needed to know, and why. She is great!
Dr. Pierce is really nice and great with kids. Highly recommend!
My visit was awesome. Everyone is friendly, gentle, professional and knowledge. They assist me with all needs including finding pharmacy near me etc. Had a excellent visit today. Thanks, Dr. M. Pierce!
Dr. Pierce is great with families. I highly recommend her.
Very nice woman and very knowledgeable about her line of work. Cares deeply for her patients.
My twin boys have been going to her since birth. They love her and they actually ask to go to the Dr. just to see her!! She is pleasant and great with children!! She feels like a family member to us. I also love that I can get in touch with her when she is away from the office.
Dr Pierce and her team were amazing! She went above and beyond to make my daughter comfortable and make it a great visit.
She actually talked to my daughter in a way that my daughter could understand her. I was very happy to met her and will be going back.
Dr. Pierce is so very personable, and remembers her patients and their names. She is great with children and their parent(s). We are very happy we have found her since moving to Hyde Park.
She was thorough, professional, and attentive. She researched the issue my son was having and came prepared to the visit with solutions. She was absolutely awesome!
We are always happy with our visits with Dr. Pierce! Before we started going to Dr. Pierce, my son was previously really scared of going to the Pediatrician, but Dr. Pierce is so good with kids! She calmed my son's fears by talking to him about what she is doing and showing him her instruments. She communicates clearly with me, and is always available for my questions. She never seems in a rush to get out the door.
She was wonderful with my 2.5 year old! She let him know what she was doing when she listened to his heartbeat and looked in his ears and nose. She completely put him at ease and was very communicative with me about how he is developing and what I can do at home. The nurse was also very friendly with us and with our son. She answered all of our questions with a smile. I will definitely recommend her to others!
I was very pleased with Dr. Pierce and her staff! I was reluctant to try a new pediatrician for my daughter based on internet reviews but I am soo glad I chose her! She was amazing and my daughter felt comfortable throughout the visit. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pierce for her outstanding pediatric service!
This doctor really cares. She went above and beyond to try to make sure I had everything I would need for a trip abroad. She was also super patient with me and my baby letting us take our time and accepting our very late arrival. She is a bit judgemental but I won't hold it against her.
Great Visit! Very Knowledgeable, kind and professional. Also very patience with children. A+ experience!
Dr. Pierce was awesome! She was very friendly and gentle with my 18 month old son. I'm new to the area and was hesitant about looking for a new pediatrician. I'm so happy I chose her. She gave us some excellent recommendations. I can tell she is very knowledgeable.
Dr Pierce is just what I was looking for. A good pedestrian with a personal touch, excellent customer service, and no waiting in the waiting room! She gave me her number in order to contact her after hours.
The staff was lovely but the exam room felt dirty. Could use a deep clean. Didn't like having my toddler walk around barefoot.
Dr. Pierce is awesome! She is caring and always full of excellent advice. She not only cares about your physical well-being, she cares about your total well being - academically, emotional and your future!
