A mom and dad describe why they feel so comfortable at IWS.
“What you do here helps out a lot of families. It’s really helped us a lot. Everyone goes beyond. The people who give the shots, everyone in the lab area – everyone is wonderful. The building is clean, with a pleasant atmosphere.
We have relationships with everyone – the receptionist, scheduler and all the providers. There’s a close bond. We’re not just anonymous. We went to another place once and it was very cold, not a welcoming place at all. It was not at all welcoming to kids.
Here, kids can be kids. “
