  • "Our family has been coming here for 12 years and we have always had the best care. Office staff are friendly and helpful. All of the Doctors are kind and my kids never complain about going. Their urgent care hours are also a great resource. With 3 kids being able to talk with your doctor has saved us many trips to the ER!"
    Verified Reviewer
  • "I had a terrific experience today at my child’s physical appointment, with Dr. Follmar. The staff was friendly and attentive. I needed an urgent physical exam per my son’s band camp requirements and was able to be seen the same day I called. Although the exam was thorough, I zoomed in and out of there. My appointment was at 3:15pm and I had virtually no waiting time. I have three more children and I will definitely continue going back to Dr. Follmar."
    G. Jacqueline
