    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.
