words from our patients

“I have been bringing my kids to Southdale Pediatrics for over 10 years. All of the doctors are top-notch, dedicated and so accessible. I love the ease and availability of scheduling appointments, especially for my "medically challenged" child who many times needs to be seen within hours. I have complete trust in the excellent medical staff at Southdale Peds and highly recommend them!”

Marcy

“We have had great experience with all of the doctors we've seen here. I especially appreciate the great care our children have received as babies when two of them needed more critical care and hospital stays. I also really appreciate the nurse line and after hours nurse connection. This is so important to me, as it got me to take my seven week old baby into Children's Hospital right away. Thank you for all you do.”
