Dr Kaplan is truly great at what he does, he knows when to be empathic, and when to cut the fat… He also has a great staff. We have worked with many of the nurses, as well as two of the other doctors that work in the practice. there is a great level of professionalism and kindness, which is perfect for what they do.
Edgar P.La Palma, CA
This is the best pediatric group we’ve tried so far – short wait times, separate sick and well waiting rooms, and KIND doctors. We especially like Dr. Tosu. She’s down to earth, patient, and not quick to medicate, which I appreciate. Highly recommend this group.
Amy O.Long Beach, CA
This is by far the best pediatricians office I’ve ever been to. They use separate sick and well waiting rooms for one. We usually see Dr. Kallah and she and the entire staff are so good with the kids and parents. They are usually very busy but you don’t wait very long for your name to be called. They have a great system.
