Despite living over an hour away HCFC is the only clinic I take my kids to. Dr
Hertenstein cared for my 17 year old when he was a newborn until last year. My 6 year
old son has seen Dr. Paul (as he calls him) Lively since he was a newborn. I love after
hours clinic since we do have to drive, love that a doctor is on call when the clinic is
closed and the the nurses are awesome! I love that wait time in the waiting room is very
short. I also appreciate the doctors allowing extra time during the appointment to answer
any question I have. I’m an RN myself and can verify that this clinic and their staff are
top notch! I won’t take my child anywhere else.
When our 4 year old daughter had pneumonia, Dr. Rinker provided us with excellent care. Her close monitoring of the situation and calm demeanor were comforting as she started treatments in the office, arranged for the ambulance and admission to the hospital. We are thankful for the good healthcare we receive from the office.
I'm pretty sure my daughter is alive in part because of the amazing and loving staff of
Health Care For Children. They have been caring for her since she was born 7 weeks
early and I have recommended more people to HCFC than I can count. They have the
best staff that know their patients and are beyond dedicated. The hours are fabulous! Dr.
John and Dr. Paul are the best pediatricians and we are very blessed to have them in our
I have seen every Dr in this Clinic expcet Mrs Lively. They are all amazing. I switched to this office when my baby was 7 weeks old and was heard from day one! Last year my infant hit his head in the huge snow storm that shut everyone down. I called the office and Dr Rinker called me from home to check on him and then called a couple more times that night to see how he was doing. He was fine but being a first time mom I was in panic mode. They have never made me feel stupid or annoyed with all the phone calls I made that first year and I appreciate that! Thanks for being amazing and having an amazing staff!
Our family has been going to Health Care for Children since my first child was born nearly ten years ago! Dr. Tessa Rinker is a caring, thoughtful, compassionate and conscientious doctor. We trust her completely to advise us on the medical care for all three of our children. We feel very blessed to have Dr. Tessa, as well as the entire team of pediatricians and nurses, as our children’s health care providers. It is a huge relief to know that anytime our children are sick, we can talk to a nurse or doctor and be seen, even on the weekends. I recommend Health Care for Children to everyone I know, with no reservations. Dr. Rinker and Health Care for Children are wonderful.
