Dr. Cleary is the reason I would recommend the clinic.
Anyone would be lucky to be Dr. Cleary's patient
I highly recommend Dr. Cleary.
She is the best, very up to date on current medicine and I love that she has older children with similar age gap so she remembers and understands what we're going through.
I would recommend Dr. Cleary without reservation to anyone looking for a pediatrician
We LOVE Dr. Clearly!
Dr. Cleary is "my speed," I like that she's quick. It helps me not to overthink every little thing. But, I have mom friends who would need their hand held more, and for them, I would recommend another provider.
Dr Cleary is wonderful. She is thorough, up to date on the literature, very kind, and a great advocate for my son.

Dr. Cleary is very friendly, answers all of my questions thoroughly, and is VERY efficient.
Dr Cleary is amazing with our son who has ADHD and Attachment disorder..she reads the tacit cues, connects with him in just the perfect way, and diplomatically gets my input (Mom). She is an exemplary paediatrician! She cares and always follows up!
Dr. Cleary is excellent and we recommend her to others all the time.
She was awesome.
Dr Karli Cleari is AMAZING, she understands our special circumstances and ALWAYS shares her wisdom. She is not just a professional who does her job but she cares and listens to her intuition. Many times as an adoptive Mom there is only so much I can say with our son in the room but Dr Cleari understands and finds the right words to address my concerns without my son being fully aware. I also love that she is in charge of the appointment and that kind of structure and boundaries helps my son who is at times hard to manage. Dr Cleari is an amazing doctor and I am so grateful she is in your team of doctors. She is honest, has integrity and cares.
Dr. Cleary is SO awesome! We feel lucky to have her in our lives!
Dr. Cleary spends adequate time with us, but I do usually feel rushed. Perhaps she's trying to get us in & out for our sake after we've been waiting.

Dr. Cleary is the best! Great explanations. We fully trust her.
Doctor was very rushed, agitated, and abrupt. She seemed irritated we were there - and my daughter cried after she left.
Great doctor!
This is our 3rd visit with this provider, and I always feel that she's rushing through the appointment. Not enough time with the patient.
Always nice.
