    This provider works late, so that working moms can still be present at their job without penalty and they'll get their family looked after and cared for so she goes out of her way I think to meet the needs of all the families and their time schedules and I really appreciate her. She was a lot of fun.

    Dr Bakken was EXCELLENT. My son is a very complex case and he is severely disabled. She went outback of her way to make sure the appointment went smoothly. She even sent a detailed email the night before. Outlining her goals for the appointment and asking about my concerns. Way above and beyond. I was shocked. She is fantastic.

    Eliza takes time to listen and answer our questions. She also brings up topics that we may not have previously thought of. Most of all she is encouraging to us as new parents.

    Okay, Bakken goes out of her way to make sure that my son is well cared for and all of his needs are met and that my concerns are met as well and she's been amazing and actually kept us at Doernbecher for General Pediatrics because she took on my both of my sons.

    The Doctor we had took the time to get to know my daughter at her first visit. She addressed everything in a manor that both my daughter and I could understand. She came up with a great plan of action and we could not be happier to be taking steps forward.
