Feedback from Public Health Nursing Surveys

[The nurse] was always willing to listen to and answer all of my questions. She made time for my baby and me, and she was willing to schedule extra weight checks to ease my anxiety.

She has been helpful in tracking the growth of my child, feeding and allergy difficulties. Also with my older child who has speech delay and behavioral issues.

Any questions I could possibly have, she answered!

WIC and Immunization/Travel/STD Clinics are now open by appointment!
