Very good.Oct 27,2016
The experience with the doctor was very good.May 27,2016
Dr. Navarro is wonderful and explains everything very plainly and is realistic about parenting I.e. I co sleep with my son and I understand the AAP's stance on it and so does she. Also she was supportive of my not giving him vitamin d because we've been spending time outside.May 03,2016
My daughter was brought in for a suspected strep throat (after not clearing up after a round of antibiotics She listened to me, examined my daughter, and did a test I requested (strep swab). While the test was being completed, she went out of her way to check my daughters medical records in response to my questions about how many times was too many before she was referred to a specialist/surgery etc. the Dr checked the # of strep positives in her medical records and spoke with me further about her recommendations and advice. She was patient, thorough, and didn't speak to me as though I was an idiot. I Very much appreciate doctors that speak like humans instead of gods.Nov 12,2015
