I really loved this practice when we first started going but let's just say...some of the new hires are not so good. It is bad enough that some of the receptionists are a bit too loud when talking about their personal business...I don't care to hear about your hot date tonight. But the past few times I visited with certain newer hires there, they have been spouting off very outdated information that has been PROVEN wrong. Maybe parkside needs to force them to go to some more current classes? Who knows. Dr jones, moll, np Carrie, ECT are good. But be wary when going to anyone hired after 2009!!!
This practice has everything a young family could want. Great pediatricians, fantastic facility, convenient hours, and the ultimate staff. We've experienced a lot of other practices and nothing compares. Our family and all our friends have been very happy with Parkside Pediatrics.
Ok but they have some areas that need – Most of the doctors here are excellent, except maybe one or two. I have never had an issue with the medical side of this place and my children love it. I do, however, have an issue with the receptionists that work here...they absolutely bring this place down. Everytime I come in they seem to be way too wrapped up in their own conversations and gossip. One of the receptionists, especially, is extremely loud and while sitting there waiting for my son's appointment, I learned all about her friend and how she got dumped the night before. Very unprofessional and I wish they would reprimand her for it...it isn't like they can't hear her...she is LOUD.
Best medical care, Best Staff and Best practice – I have been at Parkside since 2006 and they continue to make me so happy I made the decision to switch pediatricians. I had heard good things but didn’t understand until we experienced it. The staff actually speaks to you and your kids. The people there care about what you have going on and the doctors are so advanced in their medical treatment. My son was very sick and the other practice (a large on in greenville) passed us around and each doctor told us something different. That is when we had to change. We found Parkside and from that point on, we knew we were in more than capable hands. We felt like we finally had someone who was on our team and really looking out for our son. Before we always had to remember every medication and reaction and I even tried to figure out what was going on with him. At Parkside, we felt like we were no longer alone in his care. Because of all of that, we were able to get him the treatment he needed as an infant and toddler and now he is healthy, strong and you would never know anything was ever wrong. Because of the people at Parkside working so hard for my son and family, I was able to simply be his mom. I am more that grateful for Parkside for all they have done and continue to do for our family.
Nice facility – the facility is nice and front desk staff are friendly and I enjoyed the way the the rooms and waiting area were set up here. We had a bad experience here which was unfortunate but the staff were willing to meet and discuss the problems we had. Parkside was not for us and we have switched practices but I think the staff are good and will recognize any problems you may have and will work with you if you let them know of any problems you experience.
Parkside ROCKS! – I don't think i have ever been to a doctor and been in and out in under an hour but we are almost ever time we go to Parkside. And we still get time to actually talk to the doctor and not feel rushed. My son loves it because they get to watch TV the whole time and I love it because I don't have to wrestle him while asking the doctor questions! I don't know if you have ever had to do that or if it is just my kid. He actually likes going there. I mean, what's not to like, the girls up front call my son by name when we get there, he gets to watch cartoons and gets a lollipop and sticker when we leave. I don't think he even knows he is at the doctor! Sure makes my day better!
Very Sweet Staff, Yet a little too late... – I wanted to set up an appointment to tour and meet a pediatrician very shortly. I will be having my child very soon and wanted some information. I waited all day and never received any information until I sent another request asking them to disregard my e-mails. I am very big on efficiency, it could have been a complete accident, yet I can't wait on response when my child could be ill... They seem fantastic though!
Best Pediatricians in the Upstate – Parkside Pediatrics is a wonderful place to bring your children. The front office staff is amazing-they remember your name and your child's name! This may seem like a minor detail, but I love that I get a "real" person when I call-not a recording! The physicans are exceptional and so is the nursing staff. You can tell everyone really enjoys their jobs....everyone at that office is smiling! Also-if you are a mom with a child that has "special/unique needs" this is the practice for you. As a mother, if my child needed to see a specialist (and we have seen just about all of them in Greenville) or a therapist....Parkside handled every detail with speed and compassion. Thankyou Parkside for providing excellent care to kids in the Upstate!
not so great.j ust a regular business.... – My list goes on about cons... too many to list. We transferred to a new group after a year at Parkside. We just couldn't take any more of their politics.
