Very knowledgeable Doctor and felt very comfortable with my kids seeing her
Doctor Ruth was very nice took her time to address each problem that my daughter had and made her feel at ease.
Great first visit, got some questions answered.
Everyone was very professional and kind. My kids loved the staff and the doctor. They treated us like family and my kids were always smiling even after my one year old son received his shots. My two year old who was just observing said she wanted shots. I have never felt so comfortable with taking my children to a pediatrician before. My family have went through a couple pediatricians and we have now found the perfect one. Thank you to all the staff for making this visit such a pleasurable experience.
She and her staff were very nice and speedy with the appointment. Definitely going back.
Very child friendly my daughter was very comfortable with her ,myself & her father as well
Like Dr Agwuna!
Dr. Agwuna is very courteous, family oriented and professional. Her office staff are also very experienced and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Agwuna' to every family who have infant to 16-years old children.
This is one of the best doctor's in this area. We've taken our children to many and were not pleased. Dr. Agwuna was very thorough and pleasant - she took her time to carefully check our 3 year old, and addressed all of our concerns. We're going to transfer both of our children to Dr. Agwuna as the new family Pediatrician!
First couple of times the wait time wasnt a issue. Last 2 times they gotten much longer 50+ mins
Dr Agwuna is a loving professional Doctor. She even called me twice that evening to check on my daughter. Not many doctors do that anymore. We love Dr. Agwuna and her staff!
Love everything about her!
She is a wonderful doctor and offered some great advice. She works really well with kids and talks to them in a manner they can understand. I will certainly be coming back!
It is extremely rare, at least in my experience, to have a doctor come in, look me in the face, shake my hand, offer their name and ask for mine. She handled my child with great care and attention, careful not to scare her as she was already irritable from being in the doctor's office in the first place. She explained everything very carefully and gave me tips on how to get my daughter to take her oral antibiotics. She made a follow up call the same day with the lab results and explained my daughter's diagnosis. I really appreciate that she is involved and engaging. She was friendly and I'm glad I made her my daughter's primary care physician.
Dr. Agwuna was very effective in dealing with our situation - middle of our travel and a sick child. Thank you Dr. Agwuna for your help.
