I love help­ing fam­i­lies under­stand what is going on inside their child’s mind. Before we can make any true progress togeth­er we have to under­stand what every­one is thinking.

"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."

"*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."
