We love Dr Dovidio and his staff - always a pleasure

February 25, 2018 6:00 PM

February 20, 2018 6:00 PM

Love Dr. Dovidio! I can tell he really loves working with Babies!

February 12, 2018 6:00 PM

Our daughter needed blood work done a few times during her first week of life, Dr Dividio called us himself each time with the results. Our daughter also needed a bili blanket, the office set this up with home health and made the process very easy for us

January 29, 2018 6:00 PM

We always have a pleasant experience with my sons doctor and office as we did with the previous office he was with prior to his move to Randall Road.

January 19, 2018 6:00 PM

We were seen by the nurses and dr almost as soon as we got there. Very efficient and explained what they were doing. easy routine checkup

January 17, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Dovidio was patient, thorough and kind. I'm so lucky we found him!

January 15, 2018 6:00 PM

he is caring and great bed side care with patients I would recommend Dr.Dovidio anytime

January 15, 2018 6:00 PM

everytime we see Dr Dovidio, it's a great appointment. He explained everything in a way thats easy to understand without talking down to us. He ruled out everything that "could be" and ran the necessary tests to properly diagnose before sending us home. we've been patients for 2 years now and couldn't be happier that both of our kids see Dr Dovidio!

December 24, 2017 6:00 PM

we love Dr. Dovidio, I could not ask for a better doctor for my children!

December 17, 2017 6:00 PM

Always a great and very informative visit. Takes time to answer any and all questions. Really cares about us as a family!

December 16, 2017 6:00 PM

X was due for a regular checkup. We did not have to wait at all to be seen by the dr. He was very informative on what to expect with our newborn and thoroughly explained what he was looking for when checking out our son. We are very pleased with this office and look forward to continue seeing them for my children's needs.

December 3, 2017 6:00 PM

We love seeing Dr Dovidio! He is so nice to XX and very informative. I recommend him to all of our friends with children.

November 22, 2017 6:00 PM

XX is special needs and has been seeing Dr. Dovidio for over 6 years he is really good with her and she likes him a lot. he always takes his time with us and helps and answers any questions

November 5, 2017 6:00 PM

We love Dr Dovidio, although I can't say all the nurses and the support staff are the greatest. The nurse on this visit, wasn't at all good with giving the shots and lacked personality.

October 31, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Dovidio is always very patient and thorough. I would recommend this provider to all my family and friends.
