A multidisciplinary approach is used, providing medical treatment for the child's illness and also treating the social implications that the illness may have on the family. I know how important it is to listen to the patient and the family and be able to explain in a clear and concise manner the clinical situation, involving them in the decision- making process.

It was very stressful visit. The Doctor Tokarz made me feel uncomfortable because I was 5 min. late.) She made me wait 60 min. and when she entered the room, she told me I will need to wait longer because I affected her all schedule. Her statement and the way she delivered it to me made the whole experience very unpleasant to me and my child. My kid asked me: Was the doctor mean to you, because it felt like it."

Thank you for being patient, thorough and easing my fears.
