Whole Child Pediatrics is Absolutely wonderful! I have taken my teenage daughter to see Dr.Guruswamy for over a year now and we absolutely love her. She carefully listens to all our concerns and gives much great advice. When my daughter had to go on a daily medication, she was very careful about what type of medication and dose she prescribed and continues to follow up with us to make sure my daughter doesn't have any harmful sides effect. I love this practice because I never feel rushed and the whole staff is so nice. Highly recommended Dr. G and any doctor in this office.

We had to switch to another pediatrician office because this office uses very standard approach in treatment and procedures. The Whole Child name is confusing and I definitely didn't see any holistic approach in their methods, honestly speaking. And I was pushed by a nurse to a certain procedure by threatening me that they will not accept my newborn until we do it. The procedure I am talking about is not mandatory, but is just simply recommended by the AAP. I am not sure why there is such a disrespect towards a parents' rights to an informed disagreement, especially to something I have the right to simply politely refuse.

Business Response:

We are sorry that you were not happy with the care given in our office. We have a very strong reputation in the community of being as flexible as possible - much more so than other practices - on a whole range of issues. At the same time, we have a professional responsibility to follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and we do so, especially when it comes to newborns. The procedure this review mentions is is vital to the health of a newborn. The vast majority of our patients understand this.

I have taken my two daughters to Whole Child Pediatrics since Dr. Bunger joined the practice many years ago. I have never been disappointed with the care and methodology my children have received seeing these doctors. I have often come away with informative notes for their continuing care and always felt welcome to call if I had any further questions.
Even when the practice was temporarily short staffed the doctors, nurses and desk staff were always courteous, caring, well-informed and thorough.
I prefer driving one-half hour to see these physicians rather than going a mere five minutes to a nearby facility because of the experienced natural, eastern and western based philosophy of this practice.
Furthermore, when my children have needed to see specialists, they have always referred me to the very best.
I would heartily recommend this prediatric practrice and only regret that they don't see adults.

My wife and I are both amazed with Whole Child Pediatrics. They have very courteous staff that responds readily to what we ask. They are knowledgeable about alternative and holistic treatments and are able to discuss treatments options based on our requirements. They are flexible on treatments and vaccinations and aren't quick to try and just pump children full of drugs to get them better. You can feel their passion for children and the children's overall well-being rather than just a single instance. We're very pleased with them.
