"Very efficient"

"There is no better pediatrician than Dr. Bierma. We moved farther away and I drive to him because there's no one I trust more in caring for my kids than him. He cares about his patients and puts in the effort to truly know each child as an individual."
Dec. 28, 2022
"*Dr. Bierma is our second opinion pediatrician & after our first visit, we completely switched over to him being our primary. He was the first one to listen to me & actually find the root of my son's problem."
Dec. 20, 2022
"We voiced our feelings and concerns as to why we did not want a Covid vaccine. The continued push for it from the Dr. Was unwanted and unwarranted. Our health care is and should remain a choice and the Dr saying he gave it to his kids is his choice and I respect that. We don't need a Dr. Talking down to us."

"LOVE Dr. Bierma."
Apr. 25, 2022
"We LOVE Dr. Beirma. We're always recommending him to everyone we know. He always listens (no matter how silly the question or concern is), he always puts our kinda at ease, he never makes us feel silly or stupid for bringing our son to the doctors office. He has excellent interactions with parents AND their children, he always greets my son (18 months) and talks to him as well as me. He's absolutely wonderful. He covers every concern we could possibly have."
Apr. 14, 2022
"He was very quick with us. We felt very rushed during the interaction with the doctor."
Apr. 14, 2022
