I saw Dr. Plax's father when I was a child and now my children go to Danny. I have to say that there is not a more caring, patient, encouraging doctor out there. He and his staff are always patient and attentive, never rushing you through the appointment. I have soon to be 3 children and anytime they are seen for being ill or I have called with a problem the doctor, himself, calls to follow up the next day, as well as a few days later to be sure that everything is getting better. I have NEVER had the problem that the other reviewer had regarding breastfeeding. It has always been encouraged as the best option with out placing pressure to continue for an extended amount of time.I highly recommend this doctor and his entire practice as they are the top of the class.

My main complaint about this practice, and the reason I don't take my daughter there any more, is because formula is pushed over breastfeeding as the normal way to feed an infant. I was happy with the doctor's care, but I cannot take my daughter to a clinic that does not actively support breastfeeding. There are formual advertisment everywhere, including the growth charts the doctors used to chart my daughter's progress. Unbelieveable! The last straw came, however, when I was urged to wean my daughter at one year despite a healthy breastfeeding relationship being established.

Another thing I didn't like was that they do not have R.N.'s on staff. Instead, there are medical technicians who seem to not really care about the kids who come in.

PROS: Doctors personally return phone calls and relay messages
CONS: Push formula over breastfeeding
