Patient Reviews

“I have been taking my kids to FLP for over 5 years now. I just had my third child and we’ve been having trouble with his feeding. Dr. Mitchell and Janis (the lactation consultant) quickly were able to spot his tongue tie and give us ways to improve that. Today I went in for my two week appointment and my son had actually lost weight. I have been nursing nonstop so I was pretty upset to find that out. After seeing Janis again she gave me a good plan to up his weight. I left feeling confident and hopeful! I got home and immediately put the plan to use. My newborn has never been more content and happy since doing what she suggested! I’ve always received amazing care with FLP but today I cried tears of happiness from the care given today! Thank you Janis for your knowledge and help! I couldn’t continue to nurse my little one without you!”
