I recently moved to Ripley. My son is 5 & I need to find a good Pediatrician, Dentist, & Eye Doctor. He's never been to the dentist or eye doctor. I didn't know what age you began to take a child to the dentist & eye doctor. He's Bio father had dyslexia, which worries me considering it is hereditary. I've tried getting him in with Dr. Billie Toler, but they have not called me back both times I have called. Please any options of great doctors will be very much appreciated!

Well. That sums up dr tolers office. Do not go there!!! I would recommend Erin Mullins-frashier for doctor. She is across from way bright funeral home. She is very down to earth and great with kids. My daughter goes there.

Dr. Meegan Hunt is exceptional with kids and adults. You'll not be disappointed. We've been patients of hers for years!

While I love Dr Toler and my child used to go there, she has wayyy too many patients. The staff can be rude. You will have a very long wait to be seen. I take my child to Parkersburg now.

Also, Layne and Myers are fantastic with kids as far as dentistry.

You can't go wrong with any of the dentists mentioned. They all are good. I used to go to Motes/Hunt and was really happy with them, but they stopped taking my insurance and i had to switch to Walls.

i wouldnt take my dog to Dr Mullins took my daughter to her when she was a baby switched doctors real fast. Her nurse practictioner Debbie knows more than she does. And as for a Dentist i would take him to Parkersburg to one that specializes in children.

And it ridiculous that people are recommending dentist in St. Albans an Parkersburg. There is plenty of great dentist in ripley. Crazy to drive to St. Albans just to go to the dentist!! Lol

Thanks for all the recommendations! They are all very much appreciated. I will not be going to any doctors that are far away when there are doctors right here in Ripley. Especially with the gas prices & my limited income. Again thanks & please continue giving opinions, good or bad.

Dr Toler is not a pediatrician shes just a regular doctor that sees children. I take my daughter to Dr Swann and he is great with her she loves it there. And you almost never have to wait very long unlike at Tolers you wait for hours after your appointment time has passed.
