They saw my sick 5 year old as a walk-in, first timebpatient with no wait. All of the staff is super helpful, friendly, and patient. We are transferring our kids files to this office immediately. The location is very convenient as well, located less than 2 minutes from route 100. We didn't feel rushed, and Dr. Taub is very thorough. The quality of care is refreshing for this side of Howard County. 10/10 recommend for your kids pediatric needs.
