I have to agree with mom of 3 boy. I have been going there for 2-1/2 years and I love the staff they are all good people but my sons also see Dr. Compton he's great. The longest time I have ever spent in the office was 45 min. and that's from the time I walked in and out the door. My son was there for his ADD checkup and they do take a little longer sometimes when you have to go over how they have been doing. And Dr. Compton doesn't rush you when you ask him questions he always asks me if I need to know about anything else before he walks out the door. The office is called Norton Pediatric Clinic.

Excuse me do you know the meaning of ADD?? I think you are thinking of ADHD. My son knows what no means and he is the only one in the family with it. He has trouble focusing in class its not because he is wild and out of control. Learn the facts before you go and say a stupid comment like that.

I agree my son was sick one Saturday and he was the dr. on call and I didnt like him either, but my kids never see another dr. unless its on a Saturday and Dr. Comptons not on call or if Dr. Compton is out sick or on vacation and I have to get them in to see someone. You can choose which dr your child sees except for those 2 conditions

Totally agree...I loved Dr.Vicki, however, you had to take whichever they wanted you to have when you arrived. Haven't been back for around 3 years, don't plan to ever go back...

I only went to Dr. Dao twice. I thought maybe the first time was just an off day for the office. The second time was even worse. They make you wait in the waiting room for hours and then you have to wait just as long when you get back there. Don't ask to throw your dirty diaper away. They tell you that you need to carry it with you until you leave. I'm sorry, but when kids are sick you don't want to carry around a diaper that is very unpleasant. I don't think the other patients would be very please to smell feces either. I finally asked if there was somewhere outside to throw it, they advised me that there was a dumpster at the end of the parking lot. You could have offered the dumpster the first time instead of me having to ask embarrassingly. The staff is so rude! I don't recommend it to anyone. They were running so late that i asked if i could come back later that afternoon since that what time it seems the dr. was going to be able to see us anyway. I think having an 8:30 appointment and still waiting in the waiting room at 11:00 they should have let me come back, but no, they couldn't fit me back in til the following week. So i am suppose almost a week to get my child back in with an ear infection? Sounds like an office i never went back to.

Oh jeez. I hated going to dao. ALL the nurses were very rude, except one dark haired one. I took my son in for a cold..i think he was barely one then..and left with a freakin breathing machine. She gave one out , it seemed, to everyone that day. needless to say its not really ever been used. SO then I went to dr.baula...the woman dr. is nice, but the guy doc. acts like he could give two shits less about your problem and wants to rush out of there...

So, this nortons place..they are good? do they accept passport?

Pediatric Associates- Marquita Ball, Dr. Flynn and Dr. Pearman are very good in E-town behind Wendy's. But they fill up very fast and its hard to find a time when their accepting new patients because their that good. At one time Dr. Ball was the head of Pediatrics at HMH, but I don't know if she still is.

I used to take my kids to Dr Saifullah, but switched. When a doctor switched staff as much as he does there it a problem. Things get missed as did with my kids. His care has gone down hill. He can not even keep a NP or PA. Whe staff is changed so much things are missed.
