"We did some research to find the best pediatrician for our newborn and came across Dr. Richard Later in our search... He was so gentle with our baby and I didn’t feel nervous having him do the necessary check ups. He was also very knowledable and gave us answers and explanations to our questions. He was also prepared to share a lot of insight on newborns which I was very grateful for. In addition, we loved the staff and nurses who interacted with us. Very personable and kind people!" -Zoe H.
