Ratings & Reviews

Dr. Phillips is the absolute best provider.
November 2023
Doctor was one of the best with my kid. Very quick to answer questions, never treated him like a "silly kid" but a real patient with a brain and preferences and capable of participating in their own care. Doctor really impressed me and made my child feel extremely comfortable and trusted him, which is unusual for my child.

He was very thorough and did a great job explaining what what going on with my daughter's heart is layman's terms. He showed a lot of concern for how we felt.
