I was searching for a good, caring pediatrician for my children, and this place fell into our laps. We absolutely love Dr. Alzalam and all other staff here! Blessed!


Been there twice for my 2 years old daughter. Both times the staff was wonderful, and the wait was very short.


Great smiling faces and very helpful– didn’t make me feel like a bad mom for not knowing what was wrong with my little girl.
