People Say

“My 4-year-old daughter with special needs and I had a great visit with Dr. Machado last week. It was our first visit with this doctor. Dr. Machado took the time to review my daughter’s chart and familiarize herself with her medical issues in advance. As a result, we had a very smooth visit and all my questions were answered.”

“Not only was I a patient of Dr. Golenbock and Dr. Magner growing up, now both my kid are. I love this place for their outstanding doctors, flexible hours and knowledgeable staff. All the nurses there are so amazing! I especially LOVE Dr. Machado. She is always so proactive, on time for her appointments and really gives it all. With two locations as well, this place is perfect in my eyes.”
