"We have been going to Forest Lane Pediatrics since May of 2005. Working with these doctors, nurses, and the 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!"
