Dr. Lener was incredibly kind. My daughter has Autism and she is nonverbal, Dr visits are always stressful and challenging. But the staff and Dr. Lener were so so kind and patient, (PHI removed) with no aggressions whatsoever. It was such a relief to be able to go in and have someone actually care enough to do a full check up on her and to speak to her like she matters. I can't thank all of them enough for their kindness and professionalism.

Just wanted to take the time to appreciate Dr. Juliet Lener my husband and I are very happy with the care that she provided to both of our kids and even though we moved and are a little far out, now we still make the effort to drive to her because she is very well worth it. And we look forward to having her as our kids pediatrician for many more years.

I really appreciated how professional and friendly the staff and (name removed) were. The only thing that might hold us back is the insurance part because the office doesn't accept some insurance that we provided throughout employer. So, that's the only reason why we may not become a patients there. Thank you so much for taking your time to see us.

Appointment was 3:20PM and was not seen til 4:30PM. Was extremely frustrating but understanding Doctor was busy with previous patient. We hope this does not happen for future appointments.

Dr Lener is great. We love her. We did have to wait awhile to see her, but you know when you do, that she'll spend the time needed for your child as well. She is very thorough and an excellent listener. I would highly recommend her.

We brought my child in for Behavioral issues and Dr. Lener knows my child knows our child. She talked with her just like she should and it just is lovely. How (PHI removed) opens up to her because she has had such a relationship with her and we truly appreciate everything that she does for our daughter and it was great because we were able to understand why (PHI removed) was doing some of the thing and It's just nice to be able to go and see her. Thank you very much.

I accidentally press 1 for the second question. It should have been for 4. For yes definitely, but also Dr. Lener is very personable. She remembers us. He always asked about the other child of ours. She is wonderful and would not like to change. Thank you very much.

My daughter has been seeing Dr Lener since she was born and now she's eight years old. We live in Oregon now, but we made sure our insurance would cover her as her pediatrician. We fly down to CA for her physicals. Luckily, our daughter hasn't needed other appointments but if it did we would fly for those too. Dr. Lener is an amazing doctor, kind human being, professional just amazing! My mom takes my daughter for her appointments at times and she loves her as well. We love you Dr. Lener! Best wishes, [PHI removed]

During a challenging situation everyone I spoke to from the switch board attendant, the CHOC nurse, the office staff and Dr Lener was kind, listened and was understanding. While my child's PCP was unavailable Dr Lener was and took very good care of attending to [PHI removed].

Dr Lener has always been professional, thorough and caring. I trust her very much. However, The nurse or medical assistant asked me about my child vision check. I answered my kid saw an ophthalmologist 3 years ago. She recorded my kid saw an ophthalmologist within a year. My kid missed the vision check/ screening during the visit. We need to go back now to get the vision screening.

I think that it's important for PIH and all other organizations, medical organizations to take into account, special need's parents and their children who are coming to the pediatrician's office. My son has autism and that been expressed every time that I make an appointment, and even though I expressed that he gets very anxious and that he's easily, you know, agitated just visiting the doctor's office.

Love this office, Dr. Lener is excellent! We moved 45 minutes away and still choose to go to her. Can't ask for a better pediatrician! Thank you.

Everyone was so friendly and professional. The dr and staff took their time to explain information and answer all our questions. Very knowledgeable and very welcoming.

Dr Lener was great. I did feel her nurse was a bit unprofessional. My son asked me if I thought it would be odd if the doctor declined to get the COVID-19 vax. I answered him, but the nurse made a comment. She expressed how everyone has medical freedoms. It was somewhat under her breath but we were all able to hear her. Her tone and body gestures were not professional nor was her comment. I didn't address her comment specifically. I did explain to her that there were protesters at his school that afternoon and that's why the vax was on his mind.
