May 4, 2020 8:31 AM

Excellent doctor, sent right away for x-rays.

March 28, 2020 5:02 AM

Dr. Vyas has been so helpful in guiding us through the first few months of our first child's life!

March 17, 2020 12:11 AM

The receptionists made it obvious to other patients in the waiting room my daughter had contagious illness patients started moving away. I don't believe there is enough privacy when you speak to receptionist. Other patients are able to hear the communication between patient and receptionists. I'm considering changing pediatrician. I was an inconvenience today because my daughter was not allowed to use bathroom inside the office area.

February 29, 2020 7:17 AM

I love Dr. Vyas

February 27, 2020 9:36 AM

Dr. Vyas has been incredible - Not only in treating our son, but the family as a whole. We could not be happier with her.

February 13, 2020 11:53 AM

The people at the front desk are not mice. They are rude and don't seem to like their job.

February 10, 2020 1:33 PM

Excellent.

January 27, 2020 10:33 AM

The doctor is very professional and attentive to our children's needs.

January 27, 2020 10:33 AM

Great experience!

December 23, 2019 7:47 PM

good experience

December 23, 2019 1:28 PM

she is the greatest! we love her and we're happy that a family member recommended her.

December 14, 2019 7:11 AM

Dr. Vyas has always from the beginning been a great pediatrician because she is very knowledgeable about my children's healthcare. She always thoroughly explains all I need to know and is very thoughtful when listening to what I have to say. I would not take my children to anyone else. Dr. Vyas's nurse is always kind and knows exactly who we are and makes us feel comfortable always. They're the perfect team for us.

December 9, 2019 1:25 PM

She was very good. I came for a second opinion about whether or not a procedure was necessary, and her check up was more thorough than our regular provider. We will switch to Dr Vyas as our PCP in the future.

November 25, 2019 1:39 PM

If this was my first appointment with this doctor/office/nurse, I would never go back again. It truly made me feel bad. Bad that I wasn't hear, bad that I felt I couldn't communicate anything with my autistic son and ended up having a little boy that completely freaked out and had a tantrum. He is only three. He normally does well with shots, if his Dad is present. Honestly, as I type this, I am considering looking at my options to find a different physician who has staff that will listen to me when I say my Autistic son needs extra support.

November 18, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Vyas is always kind and thoughtful with my child. She is patient with my child and also asks how the child's sibling is doing. She always listens to my concerns and makes good suggestions. I am happy to have her looking after my kids.

November 14, 2019 11:00 PM

Some questions from this survey do not pertain to my newborn #42, 44, 45, (47, 48. No prescriptions.) I had a great experience with this provider.

November 8, 2019 11:00 PM

my provider is excellent. she answered me well and good, whenever I called her or need any advice for my baby.

October 27, 2019 7:00 PM

knowledgeable and never makes me feel rushed when I ask her questions. She explains everything in a way I can understand and is supportive of my family.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Vyas has been great!

October 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Vyas was amazing! We have been to many pediatricians and most don't listen to our concerns or brush off any comments we have. She took the time and patience to help me through my concerns and helped me with a solution. I know children are very difficult my child not an exception and when he felt scared she made sure he felt at home. All I can say is thank you for making our first visit with advocate an unforgettable one

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Vyas is a very caring and helpful provider. Explains things that I should expect and offers tips to help.

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

This office is very pleasant, we transferred into their care because we had some concerns with the office of his prior provider. They are attentive and responsive which we appreciate. This walk-in visit was a prime example of why the office works for parents of small children - it was available and we didn't have to wait for a visit for our sick child.

January 20, 2019 6:00 PM

My experience with this provider was excellent. All care was complete, respectful and met our needs as a family. I recommend this provider regularly to friends, family, and all others inquiring about a pediatrician.

January 14, 2019 6:00 PM

the doctor was amazing. the receptionist staff seemed less interested in assisting the very long waiting line to get checked in

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

We always have great visits with Dr. Vyas. We went through several pediatricians prior to seeing Dr. Vyas, and definitely like her the best. We specifically appreciate the way she incorporates research in all her medical decisions regarding my son. We also like that she is very thorough before making a recommendation for something new. Once she does recommend something new, she is timely in her referrals.

November 18, 2018 6:00 PM

very thorough

September 30, 2018 7:00 PM

very knowledgeable

September 27, 2018 7:00 PM

We have been very happy with the care provided by Dr. Vyas. She is great with my son and always happy to answer questions. We also love the new office.

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

All good!

September 3, 2018 7:00 PM

she was so nice, and my child was happy with her.

September 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Vyas is exceptionally attentive, patient, and takes time to build a strong relationship with both the parent and the child. She knows the child's health history and we always appreciate the big-picture and more micro-level advice she gives us. My son was hesitant as he waited for his appointment but after spending time with Dr. Vyas during the appointment, he talks about her frequently and is excited to visit her again. We couldn't be happier with the level of care and the kindness and respect she shows her patients.

July 25, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Vyas is extremely in turn with my son's well being. We talked about his growth and development at length and she has been wonderful with follow up and making sure that his development is looked at very closely and monitored.

July 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Vyas is one in a million. She demonstrates incredible knowledge in her field and boosts my confidence in the care that my children receive. She's extremely personable and has a heart of Gold. Her nurse/patient care tech is also amazing. My children love her and that's what makes every encounter with this Doctor enjoyable.

July 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Vyas always answers (our) my questions before I have to ask them. She really understands the concerns and important information parents need to know about having new baby. Very professional and knowledgeable, courteous, professional demeanor, pleasant to work with.

July 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Vyas knows our family very well and always makes doctor's visits a good experience for X and a reassuring experience for his parents. Dr. Vyas keeps her knowledge of pediatrics up-to-date, and we trust the insights and information that she provides us. She's respectful of our decision-making process as parents but also goes a long way to helping us feel sure about medical decisions for our children. We are extremely pleased with Dr. Vyas as our pediatrician.

May 26, 2018 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Vyas! She is caring, goes out of her way to check in with us to see how the kids are doing, and she listens to and respects what we think and feel. She has helped us trough many difficult health situations. She is a wonderful doctor!

January 29, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Vyas is great. She listens, she talks in words I can understand, and she interacts well with my son.

January 14, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Vyas was personal & friendly during this 1st meeting/visit. I appreciate the time she took to get down & talk w/my 4 y.o. While we will enjoying the care of this provider, we will truly miss our (retiring) current & PAST pediatrician, Dr. XX. Dr. XX was a phenomenal and lovely man. I hope he has a wonderful retirement.
