    Quick & efficient, but I didn't feel rushed out.

    Dr. Paxton remembers my daughter like she's his only patient he is very kind, very easy to talk to, and I feel like I understand what I need to do to keep my daughter healthy.

    We always have a good experience at Dr. Paxton's office. Kind & considerate people work there.

    We like the office, doctors, and staff. The patient left hoping for more immediate help. He also felt like he was treated younger than his age. He is a junior in high school. He graduates next year and can handle an adult conversation. He has always been smaller in stature, which makes people have the tendency to talk down to him. The staff should be mindful of the patient's age and treat them accordingly.

    We got in right away and everyone was kind and professional. We would definitely recommend this team.

    This isbest doctors office I have ever taken my kids to.

    Experienced on Dec 20, 2018

    My only suggestion would be to let me schedule all my children's well-child checks at the same time so I'm not making 3 separate appointments.
