“Dr. Magner gives such special attention to my 7-year-old daughter. We’ve been with her since we moved her (my daughter was almost two). A great doctor who gives very useful advice. Asks us the right questions. She gets it and lets us ask and makes us feel comfortable discussing anything. We highly recommend Dr. Magner and the staff at Center for Pediatric medicine.”
