Dr. Chambers is a phenomenal pediatric physician. I have taken my 11 month old to her since he was born. She worked him in recently on a day that her schedule was booked just because I was a concerned parent over my sick child. She also called the following day to check on him. Any time I call up to the office she is more than happy to answer any of my questions at any time of the day/night. She always goes out of her way to provide excellent care to her patients. She's excellent and we LOVE her!

Dr. Chambers is a good physician. My son is medically fragile and I have interacted with a lot of doctors. Dr. Chambers stands out from the rest, because she has a great bedside manner, is very competent, and makes me feel heard as the patient's parent. Many doctors struggle with the 3rd part especially - it's common to feel like you are being ordered around. (I guess in a sense, it is their job to "order" things for your child, but collaboration between patient and parent in this process is really important) Dr. Chambers never has made me feel this way , and always engages in a conversation & makes me feel like it is a team effort . I am pleased that she is my son's pediatrician .
