    Dr. Dias listened carefully and asked detailed questions. Her assessment and recommendations were clear.

  • Aug 3, 2021

    Dr. Dias provided excellent care. She was thorough in the examination and was great with our son. She took the time needed to address my concerns. She even returned to the exam room while my son was given an eye exam elsewhere. The ability to talk with her privately helped answer more of my questions and reassured me. We are so thankful to have Dr. Dias as our son's pediatrician. She is truly wonderful!
