    Dr Esham is so great to work with. She is knowledgeable and carving and really strives to make sure we have everything we need to be healthy.

    I usually see Dr. [...] for all my kids. When out of the office I see the other drs. there. Dr. Esham was kind and listened. However I wish she would have presented all my options up front.

    we love dr Esham! she always answers question and seems concerned for each of my children. reassuring you as a parent.

    This was our first experience with Southridge Peds for a sick child. All of our well child care has been excellent, but this was distressingly bad. After leaving urgent care [...] Tuesday night, we saw Dr. Eshem the next day (waiting 40 min past our scheduled appointment time). She ordered an ultrasound, and another doctor ordered bloodwork, and we have never heard from any doctor since! If this is how follow up is handled when neoplasia is a possible differential, I am utterly dismayed. [...] I have called the office Thursday (after ultrasound) and Friday (after labwork, which I felt was incomplete), and no MD ever returned my call. A nurse or aid with no history of his case did call back Thursday to tell us to return Friday for bloodwork, but did not have the training to address my detailed questions about the radiologist report.

    We love Doc Esham and we have been seeing her for 11 years now. She really listens and does what 's best for my kids!

    This doctor just wasn't for us, we are obviously comparing to dr mcintuff from now on as she was the best doctor we've ever seen. This doctor just wasn't as personable and seemed a little rushed. our daughter was shy around her because she didn't get on her level which we feel is extremely important for toddlers as they don't feel comfortable in the doctor as it is.

    Out daughter's pediatrician wasn't working on this particular day but they got us in right away with another doctor. We love this practice and love [...]! (Her pediatrician.)

    She is great about not making us feel rushed, which I really appreciate.

    Provider does not provide enough medical explanations and work more like a counselor & consultant rather than a doctor.
