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.

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!

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.

The staff was lovely but the exam room felt dirty. Could use a deep clean. Didn't like having my toddler walk around barefoot.
