“I’ve recommended this practice to both friends and new moms in the area alike. We couldn’t be happier with the treatment given to our children by the doctors at Health Care For Children.”
“We are blessed with healthy, beautiful twins. Still, as a new mom, I am sometimes very anxious. Dr. Daliva listens to my concerns and caringly treats my children just like they are hers!”
“We have been bringing our children here for years! We know all the doctors, nurses and office staff as well. Everyone is friendly great with kids, which is not always the case elsewhere.”
Ellie & Juan Jimenez
