  • "We have been taking kids to Doctor Shanker for 17 years- she is great! We love her and so do our kids. The staff is always wonderful and caring. Thank you for making some of our toughest days as parents better with you care and professionalism."
  • "Dr. Shanker is the best! My baby has complex issues and she always takes her time. She will call after hours to discuss her plan for him. The staff is amazing and always kind."
  • "We have been going there since our son's birth and we are very happy with the care. We have seen Dr Shanker and Shelley Ridgway, and both have given exceptional care to our son. Being first time parents, we had lot of questions, all of which were addressed appropriately. The clinic has a
    spacious waiting room, check in was always welcoming and quick, and the wait time for the doctor was pretty reasonable. The providers are very flexible and have never tried to impose any treatment we weren't comfortable with. They also have same day sick visits, which was easy to
    set up. One thing I really appreciate is the promptness of replying back to us on the patient portal messages, even on a Friday evening, with detailed instructions. Overall, I have no regrets and highly recommend."
