... My oldest daughter would come home and practice listening to the heart beats of her baby dolls "just like Dr. Tim does it". I cried when I found out he was leaving. Austin, you are so lucky to have Dr. Tim.

Dr. Tim was wonderful. He came to my house & completed my daughter's exam & vaccines in my living room. It was such a relief and so much more comfortable than going into an office.

What makes Dr Tim so special is his uncanny ability to make you feel that you’re doing a great job as a parent - something that’s imperative during your child’s first year of life.
