What Our Families Say About Us…

Marlon and Stacy, parents

“We have twin girls who were born premature and spent two months in the NICU.  When they came home, it was important for us to find a doctor who could be a teammate, mapping out the girl’s long-term development while also helping us keep them healthy.  We couldn’t have been luckier to have found Dr. Sabine. Her counsel has been tremendous, communicating with us during our appointments, but also outside regular hours as needed, and she is always super responsive.  Most of all, she treats our kids as if they are her own and with incredible energy! As first-time parents, working with someone as personable and loving as Dr. Sabine has been fantastic
