Dr. Rawls is kind, knowledgeable, approachable, and I trust him completely! I have recommended him to many friends because he is so phenomenal.
Patient | October 5, 2017

Dr. Rawls is the best pediatrician I have ever experienced. He is very down to earth, and sincerely listens to the parents and their gut instincts. He explains everything very well without all the dr jargon, so it is easy to understand. I am so glad we found him just before our daughter was born! :-) In the past, there was a bit of disconnect from the ear dr. in sharing information with Dr. Rawls, so that was a little concerning to us, but I kept on all of them to make sure things were seamless in my eyes.
