Dr Ketron is wonderful. The son who had the appointment recently has seen him since he was 2 weeks old. We would never go anywhere else. Dr Ketron is always so friendly and easy to understand. He talks with you about problems rather than just marking something down. My kids love him, and he's so good with them!

Dr. Ketron is an outstanding pediatrician. My 3 children have seen him for the last 10 years. I felt he always had the kids best interest in mind and treated us like family.
