“We searched high and low for the best practice to meet our son’s needs. Our son has autism and it was a challenge to actually find a doctor that understood my concerns as a mom due to our son having autism. This is the best practice by far because every single doctor listens to us, validates our feelings, and actually speaks to our son. Dr. Clarke is our son’s doctor and we will be sad when our son ages out of this practice because it truly is a God send.”
– E. Warren

“My daughter saw Dr. McGonnell in the hospital and now sees Dr. Mannering and both were fantastic! Dr. Mannering is every mom’s dream pediatrician! As a first-time parent I appreciate how passionate she is because it really comes through in how thorough she is and her patience with all our questions! She never rushes our appointment and is so so so sweet with my baby girl. We just moved about 20 miles away but will continue to travel the distance to keep seeing her!”
– E. Gonzalez

“I absolutely love Dr. Diana (Plano office) and the Staff! They answer all my questions not only when I am in the office but also the many question I leave for the nurse. They always call me back within a reasonable time (less then 2-3 hours) and if my kiddo is sick I have always been able to get in the same day! Dr. Diana was able to diagnosis early that my son needed extra help and without her who knows where we would be today! I highly recommend them and the several people I have recommended her to love her as much as I do!”
– R. Crone

“Both my 3-year-old and 4-month-old are patients of Dr. Mitchell’s at Forest Lane. I cannot say enough about this practice. When I had my first, I didn’t realize how important choosing the right pediatrician was. We even tried to switch at the time to someone closer to our home and ended up switching back to Forest Lane. The lactation consultant, the 24 hour nurse line, so many perks! It’s always easy to schedule and when my doctor isn’t available I’ve seen the other doctors and they are all fantastic. They offer smart and educational health tips on their Facebook page, have a wonderful website that is easy to navigate with useful resources and everyone is nice and professional there. I have had zero issues! They do a GREAT job with vaccinations and keeping you apprised of the importance of vaccinating. They also have a wonderful, balanced perspective about almost everything when it comes to parenting and health. I’m so grateful for this office!”
– M. Meals

It is worth driving for 1 hour every time I have to take my kids to Forest Lane Pediatrics!! The kids deserves the best!!”

– C. Hardy

“I started to go to Forest Lane Pediatrics when I delivered my first born at Medical City Dallas , Dr Damien Mitchell and another Doctor visited me in my recovery room and both Doctors had examined my newborn. Dr. Mitchell just had a warm smile and genuinely examined my first born. He invited me to take My newborn for his first check up at Forest Lane Pediatrics, which I did and I fell in love with Dr. Mitchell’s care for babies, he is just perfect and he teaches me how to go about caring for my kids. He is a warm and very thorough on his examination on check ups and follow ups. Dr. Mitchell also answers any concerns on messages via forest lane portal . I drive one hour to Forest Lane Pediatrics because of Dr. Mitchell . And his staff is very kind and sweet as well. Which is very important to me .
I highly recommend Forest Lane Pediatrics.”
– A. Medrano

“My sons are 10 years old & 7 years old and have been seeing Dr. Blair since they were each 2 days old. He is a wonderful doctor, and the practice has been great – especially since they expanded to add a Plano Office. We have seen other doctors in the practice for sick visits, and have always been impressed with their professionalism. They recently added “later hours” and it has made well visits so much more convenient. Highly recommend the practice, and Dr. Blair especially.”
– E. Marlatt

“We love our pediatrician! Dr. Mannering was the first to check my baby when he was born at that time we were not sure where to take him because we live far from Plano but we decided to keep going with her. Best decision ever! We love how she treat our baby and she always answer all our questions. We now dont mind driving 40 minutes in order to get my baby checked with her and we will continue to do so.”
– E. Martinez

“I love Dr Diana!!! She is so sweet with my girls and very concerned with their development. They are crazy about her and love going to see her. They constantly fight over who gets to see her first and I guess that says it all for me.”
– C. Kelsey

“We love Dr. McGonnell! He takes him time and thoroughly answers our questions and concerns!”
– J. Martinez

“We have been going to Forest Lane Pediatrics since May of 2005. Working with these doctors, nurses and receptionist is a fantastic and comforting experience for both child and parent. My daughter has anxiety with various tests and Dr. Straughn, Dr. McGonnell and Dr. Blair always take the time to ease my daughter’s mind and comfort her. They truly care about her health and making the correct diagnosis quickly to ensure health is returned quickly for comfort and for the child’s happiness. Each doctor carries a smile into the room no matter how overwhelmed they may be with patients. We are thankful for these great people as they are a huge comfort to my daughter and my family. I highly recommend them to anyone needing a pediatrician – they are available 100% of the time and will take good care of your child/children!! Thanks to all of you for all you’ve done for my daughter and family over the years!”
– D. Holliday

“We have been seeing Dr. Blair for 4 months, and must say that he is an outstanding Pediatrician! From the first visit to the hospital, to the information he gives about our childs development, we believe that he is doing a job that he both enjoys and knows very well. My wife and I received a recommendation of him from our OB (which we love), and we are happy to know that he keeps such good company We feel very blessed to have him as our doctor. Give him a try, we are sure that you will like him!!”
– D. Maddox

“My daughter has seen Dr. Mitchell since birth and he has been wonderful! He takes a lot of time to answer our questions, and we have never felt rushed. He genuinely listens to our concerns and takes them seriously, which I really appreciate. I love the amount of education that we receive at each appointment. As first time parents, this has helped us so much!”
– B. Helm

“Dr. Blair has been extremely caring with our baby. He has made referrals to great specialists for our baby as well. He has truly built a great practice with many caring physicians.”
– E. Nikbeh

“Moms and Dads out there…Look no further…This is the place you want to take your children! We adore Dr. Mitchell but all of the staff is top notch. They are caring and thorough. They are helpful and comforting. Best pediatric staff in the Metroplex. I knew I had made a great choice when all of my friends said to me, “We go there too!!” I have referred Dr. Mitchell to MANY friends and all are very very happy!!! Don’t waste time, call them today!”
L. Todd

“Dr. Blair has taken care of both of my children (15 and 9) since the day they were born. I have been VERY pleased with his level of care, his professionalism, and his care and support to me as a parent. I can’t imagine taking my kids anywhere else. I feel confident in his ability as their doctor to monitor their growth and development into adulthood. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for me and my children!”
– L. Bradford

“We love Forest Lane Pediatrics! We see Dr. Mitchell. He is amazing. He is so good with my two boys, even when they are screaming! He always listens and addresses any concerns I may have. I never have problems getting in the same day or getting a return phone call. I have also seen Dr. Kravitz, Dr. Liu, and Dr. Clarke. They were all just as good! The staff is friendly and professional. I wouldn’t take my kiddos anywhere else!”
– A. Williams

“Everyone is very friendly. We always are seen in a timely manner. Dr. Blair came to the hospital when our son Christopher was born. All of the doctors, nurses we have seen have been wonderful! They all seem to be very patient and take care when making a diagnosis. I always feel confident when I leave. Dr. Blair is very professional and great with our son. I highly recommend anyone looking for a pediatrician for their loved ones to give them a call.”
– C. Ownby

“My baby’s primary doctor is Dr. Straughn, but we have also seen Dr. Mitchell a couple of times. Both doctors, office staff, and nurses are AWESOME. Both doctors have wonderful, kind bedside manners. Everything is always explained to me in detail and I never feel rushed during her appointments. The wait time is also very acceptable for a busy doctor’s office: 5-10 minutes.

Bonus: They are open on Saturday mornings!

Love, love, love this office.”
– Melissa H.

“Both of my children have been under the care of Dr. Ron Blair since birth on one, since age of three on the other. (she’s 18 now) I have never had such a professional, consistently pleasant experience with any Physician, ever. I wish he took care of Moms and Dads. He has a strong group of Partners that have always been willing to help when needed. First Class.”
– Nathan D.

“We have been seeing Dr. Mannering for about 2 years now and couldn’t be happier. She is the most attentive and caring pediatrician. She always makes time for both my boys to make sure they aren’t scared and answers questions for my 5 year old. Couldn’t ask for a more kid friendly doctor! She will also personally call you for lab results and any concerns she has. I love her and so do my boys!!”
– Sam G.

“Dr. Ron Blair has been both my kids doctor since birth. They are 5 & 2 1/2. He is the most kind and gentle doctor I know. We had the unfortunate problem of having to use MedicAid doctors when my wife lost her job. Thank God that we now have insurance again. The whole staff is wonderful in both locations and all the doctors are better than amazing! I interviewed 6 doctors while my wife was expecting and you won’t find any office better.”
– Charles M.

“We have been taking my son since he was a newborn, and he is now almost 5. We had to call in this morning – Christmas Eve – 15 minutes before their office closed, in a panic due to some concerning cold and eye symptoms he was having so close to Christmas. Thankfully, the office told me to come on in even though I wasn’t certain I could make it by the 10 time frame. I was 10 minutes late, but they told me not to worry and saw us anyways! Again, they saved me from having to go to urgent care – we could see our trusted pediatricians.

Our usual pediatrician is Dr. Mitchell, who we love. We have seen almost all of the doctors and have had excellent care from them all. Dr. Tang saw us today and sent us home with drops for his eyes (already helping), and even cleaned out my son’s ears and helped us with proper dosing off Zyrtec to try to ease congestion. Yes, the wait was long, but it was so busy with so many sick kiddos trying to be seen on Christmas Eve. I cannot possibly be more thankful to the doctor, nurses, and office staff for staying to see everyone today and making sure the sick littles got excellent care. The waiting was nothing compared to how grateful I am to have been seen by Forest Lane today. Thank you, Forest Lane!”
– Julie B.

“We are very blessed to have Dr. Blair as our kids doctor. He is very patient and understanding. Dr. Blair spends time talking with my children before he treats them. He is so attentive to our concerns and so thorough to make sure we understand exactly what is happening to our kids, he is patient and adapts to each of my kids personality! The best part is that he loves kids and staffs are the best ever. We have been seeing him for almost 10 years now and we are continuously and extremely happy with his services every time! He cares for my kids the same way I care for them. As far as I know all parents and kids love him!!!!! I highly recommend him if you have or plan to have kids! If I could give more than 5 stars I absolutely would!!”
– David A.

She so great with d kids, takes her time with d kids and explains things thoroughly..I don’t know how she does it but she gets the kids engaged during their visits. She is d pediatrician for all 3 of my kids with one just less than 2nd months.”
– Chioma C.

“This is a fantastic doctor. We go to Dr. Mitchell and just love him. He always takes his time. He answers all of our questions. He never makes us feel like we are asking too many questions. We have no problem getting in the day of if our son is sick. I couldn’t suggest him or his practice more.”
– Sarah H.

“I wanted to give 1000 stars to Dr. Blair! I have no words to thank him for all the attention and affection with our son … It is difficult not to be in a country that is not mine, but I feel at home and happy that God sent Dr. Blair to be the guardian angel of my son!”
– Gabriela P.

“Dr. Mannering is the BEST pediatrician, hands down! I can not recommend her enough. Even after moving 45 minutes away, I still take my daughter to see her because it’s worth the drive. She is so kind, personable, and professional. She treats my daughter like her own. My favorite thing about her is that, she does not rush during our appointments at all. Usually Doctors will come in and spend 5 minutes with you and go onto the next. Dr. Mannering plays with my daughter for a bit, gets her comfortable before doing exams. My one year old actually loves her and gets so excited every time she sees her! Dr. Mannering thoroughly goes over any questions you have and she is so friendly! I love her. I’ve never left the office ever doubting her. I hope she stays in the DFW area forever. Wait time is great and we never have to wait long. Also, making appointments and rescheduling is a breeze! :)”
– Julie H.

“I have been taking my kids to see Dr. Mitchell since my first was born nearly 5 years ago. We have also seen other Drs on occasion when one of the kids was sick and Dr. Mitchell was out of town. My first was sick a lot so I’m pretty sure we saw all of the Drs at the practice at least once. I have been very happy with our experience.”
– Whitney F.

“Dr. Mannering is simply amazing. She takes her time not only in listening to your concerns, but also in explaining diagnoses thoroughly and instructions for care. We went through 3 or 4 pediatricians before finding Dr. Mannering and we always felt rushed or like an annoyance for asking questions. I also love that they have Saturday clinic hours! We have yet to meet a doctor at this practice that isn’t kind, knowledgeable and great with the kids.”
– Savannah M.

“Both of my children (ages 13 and 3) have both had Dr. Blair as their Pediatrician since they were born and I wouldn’t want anyone else to care for them. He’s absolutely the best at what he does. Dr. Blair’s staff is very attentive and quick to respond. They’ve made each visit extremely easy and smooth. Thanks for going above and beyond, Karen! It is GREATLY appreciated!”
– Britt C.

“Dr Mannering has been my daughter’s doctor since she was born and we love her! She is very kind, thorough, personable and professional! There is the added bonus that she has chosen to work in a practice where the whole staff is excellent. My two year old actually asks to go see the doctor!”
– Brona H.

“Dr. Blair had been taken care of my twin since they were born and now they are 5 year olds. Dr. Blair is the best pediatrician and we felt very lucky to have him as pediatrician for our kids. He always was able to make our worriedness disappear whenever we brought our kids to see him. Dr. Blair is not only treat our kids, he also showed us how to take care of our kids better. At last, Dr Blair’s staffs is also wonderful.”
– Phuong N.

“Absolutely love Dr. Diana! She is absolutely personable, caring, and doesn’t mind you asking “silly” questions! She also has a vast network of specialist she knows and has helped our journey tremendously! If your looking for a pediatrician I recommend you do a consultation with her!”
– Roxie C.

“I cannot rave enough about this practice. Dr. Blair saved my son’s life. Their lactation consultant helped me through my problems with understanding and compassion. We see Dr. Mannering if Dr. Blair is not available. Everyone is kind, attentive, and efficient. I can easily book sick appointments within 2 hours of my call. The office is clean and easy to find.”
– Erica L.

“This office operates very well. Even though it’s a large group can you lose some of the personal touch the staff is very friendly. We have seen Dr. Mitchell for the last 6 years.”
– Diana O.

“We love Forest Lane Pediatrics! Our child just turned one and has been a patient of Dr. Mitchell’s. Since the day he was born, we have had a great experience with Dr. Mitchell. When our son was born and having problems, Dr. Mitchell came to the newborn nursery to see him and then came to talk to us to tell us how he was doing. Throughout his first year he has been attentive to his medical care and truly concerned about our family. His office is very professional. They have an excellent Lactation Consultant in the office. We could not ask for a better experience with Forest Lane Pediatrics!”
