Testimonies from pediatrician survey (Spring 2022)

  • “Having access to someone who can help our patients quicker than we have ever had before.  My patients and their parents are truly benefiting from working with the LCSW.”
  • “Its really nice to have an LCSW just right there in the office and that helps to give early assistance to needy patients.”
  • “She is available in office and can see patients after their appt with provider (convenient for the parent).  She can assess the severity for further referral.  She can follow-up if they need more frequent counseling.”
  • “Has been easier to get help for these patients in a timely manner as there are not too many resources out there in our community and the wait has been long.”
