We’ve never had a bad experience with Coastal Kids, and my children are 6 and 8 years old now. We started coming here when our firstborn was 2. We’ve never had an issue setting well check appointments, flu shots, vaccines, etc. They have two entrances – one for sick kids, and one for healthy kids. And their waiting area is warm and inviting with flat screen TV’s to keep the kids occupied while they wait. Our main pediatrician is Dr. Kornu, who is only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She’s always been wonderful with my children – very attentive, kind, patient, and thorough. You will be in good hands with her!
