    Dr.God is the BEST! She not only listens, but really explains what's going on, educates us (especially as new parents) in a way that's helpful and encouraging. 11/10 always recommend. So much so we followed her from her last practice. We've never had a doctor we trusted or likes more.

  • Dec 8, 2023

    Doctor God is very thorough. She did a full assessment, spoke with my preteen about any concerns she might have, puberty in the future, etc. She is extremely kind, thoughtful, thorough and easy to talk with. We were able to get her flu shot on the spot and a print-out of all results.

    Dr God answered all my questions. She's always so kind to my daughter. She is very easy to talk to and very reassuring.
