Dr Widmer is the best pediatrician in the area. She is very knowledgeable and professional and speaks to kids on their level, while explaining everything to the parents. She is pro-active with health, but not pushy. She is simply the best. I refer all young parents to her.

Dr. Widmer is everything I would want from a pediatrician. She is so kind and patient with my daughter, but also with me! As a new parent, I have so many questions. But she is truly willing to listen and give sound advice or share knowledge on a topic. Since so much of child's health is also dependent on behavior, it's also great that she helps me to think about what is coming next, how to stimulate progress, and so on.

Dr. Widmer is always so professional, caring, and never misses a beat when it comes to remembering questions/past messages I've sent her and she is the nicest pediatrician I've ever met! My two sons ages 4 & 2 absolutely LOVE her! My 4-year-old asks to go see her on a weekly basis and whenever he does see her, he runs toward her and gives her a huge hug! She has helped our family immensely these past 4 years. Hands down would recommend her (and have recommended her) to friends with kids!
