I LOVE this office! The front desk staff is always so friendly and helpful! It’s clean and always has fun kids movies on in the waiting room. Dr. Stevens is absolutely amazing!!!! She is always SO patient and she takes time to answer all of my many questions and concerns at every appointment. She is so knowledgeable and is wonderful with both of my kids. She gives great advice and always has ideas for things to try with my kids. We LOVE her!!!

We've been taking our kids to see Dr. Higgins in the Centennial office since January 2018. He has done an outstanding job with them. He always takes the time to answer any questions and explains everything thoroughly. Our kids really like him too!

I took my daughter here for her 4 month appointment and all the staff was so nice! My husband and I just moved here from California a couple of months ago and wanted to make sure our daughter had a reliable doctor. I was really nervous because she had to get her second round of shots and she cried SO hard the first time she got them. I was worried the same experience would repeat itself, but she didn't even cry because the nurse was so reassuring and administered the shots swiftly and gently. I want to keep coming here to make sure my daughter is healthy and in safe hands. Definitely would recommend any family to have their babies/kids checked here for any need.

Although every provider we have had at Advanced Pediatrics has been wonderful! I just wanted to say how extra wonderful Wesley Gallegos is! He is so wonderful with my 15 month old son and I look forward to coming to the office when he is our Provider! He is so kind and knowledgeable! I feel so comfortable with him and really appreciate the care he gives my son! Thank you Wesley!! The Nurse support line is fabulous and I appreciate its availability to us. I love how conservative they are and do not recommend me bringing in my son for every little thing- I appreciate how quickly my calls are answered and how my concerns are always addressed. As a First Time Mom this is a great resource! Advanced Pediatrics is truly the best office I have ever been involved with! Thank you so much!

Misty, Centennial Office

My sons have been patients with Advanced Pediatrics since 2009 when they were 9 and 7 years old. We have loved every provider we have seen. Your entire staff has always been very kind and helpful - especially the schedulers and the case managers in the ADHD department. Today we met with Dr. Apple for the first time and we couldn't be happier! My sons are now 17 and 15 years old and they were very comfortable with him. Dr. Apple is a wonderful addition to your team and I sincerely appreciate all of you!

Sheryl, Parker Office

Dr. Payne has been our children's doctor for over five years. He's professionalism and friendliness is top notch. Most recently our infant son had a cough that could have been croup. The day after we saw Dr. Payne, he called to check on our son. The care our children receive from Dr. Payne as well as Joanna, his MA is excellent. Thank you, Dr. Payne and Joanna for making our trips to APA a positive experience. You know our kids and they are comfortable in your care.

I am writing to say we can't thank Audra enough for the superb assistance she gave us in trying to get a Med filled. It turns out it was the Pharmacy who goofed, but she was able to advise them and they rebilled both our insurances so that we did not have to pay the $200 out of pocket for a co-pay. Had it not been for her, we would have eaten that $200. Everyone is always so helpful, not just Audra in this case, but we have had many over the years. You truly feel like your child is special when visiting any location. Thank you!!!!!!!

Dawn, Nurse Line

Since the day they were born, my twin boys have received excellent care from Advanced Pediatrics. Not only do they care for the boys, the providers make sure my husband and I are doing ok too. The website is incredibly informative and helpful. The nurse line is an excellent resource for a nervous mommy. The office staff is professional and friendly. Every nurse, MA, and doctor we've seen treats us with compassion and kindness. I feel like my concerns are respected and addressed in a way I understand. I love Advanced Peds and my boys will be patients until they're too old. Thank you!

Effie, Aurora Office

My daughter saw Maggie Hawkins PA for her well child visit. My child does not like the scale, to be measured, to have blood pressure taken and throws a ginormous fit when it's time for it to be done. I dread doctors visits because it is so painful (even if nothing painful is being done). Our well care visit started the same way every appt has with screaming. Maggie came in and calmed her down and then gave her the check up along with her stuffed elephant. By the end of the appointment my daughter was laughing and smiling. Thank you so much Maggie, we've never had an appointment go that smoothly.

Kelsey, Parker Office

From reception to the doctor visit, we have always had a great experience! Any doctor we have had has been great, but we have seen Dr. Kramer many times and my teenagers really like her.

Kellie, Parker Office

I have enjoyed all care takers we've seen. Dr. Payne is wonderful in person, as well as promptness responding to messages!

Kristy, Centennial Office

I have two children and have seen most providers at APA. I am really happy with the care that I have received from Dr. Payne. He is empathetic and makes my kids feel at ease going to the doctor's office. I appreciate his responsiveness; it tells me that he listens to my concerns. He asks questions to make sure he understands my concerns. He has a great bedside manner. Most importantly, I trust his opinions and guidance about my children's care. I feel comfortable entrusting my dearests to him. They also have great medical assistants! They show patience, kindness and efficiency. Thanks APA!

Kristine, Centennial Office

My brother, sister and I were patients of Dr. Paula Levin (who is now retired) at APA when we were children. Now my four boys and my sister's two children are patients at Advanced Pediatrics. My children usually see Dr. Stevens. Advanced Pediatrics has guided me as a young mom into wonderful parenting, providing guidance for preventative care, as well as positive reinforcement and encouragement as I grew as a parent. We first saw Dr. Stevens after the birth of our first child. She was so encouraging and caring, giving us one on one time. She made us feel important and know that she really cared about us and our new baby. She took time to answer all of our questions and helped us to feel safe and secure with our newborn. I have complete trust in the care that we receive at Advanced Pediatrics and love the long term relationship that we have with both the doctors and other staff. We are at home with Advanced Pediatrics!

Amber, Centennial Office

I started going to APA to see Dr. Michael Kurtz when I was about 6 weeks old. My brother was also a patient of Dr. Kurtz. As adults, my brother and I now bring our own children to Advanced Pediatrics. We still see Dr. Kurtz whenever he is available. We just recently saw Dr. Clancy and really like her as well. I know that Dr. Kurtz is involved in hiring all new providers, and I would trust anyone that he hires. His opinion says a lot. Dr. Kurtz is always so reassuring and I trust him completely. He helps me not to worry. We just love him! I recommend Advanced Pediatrics to everyone! Being able to always trust the pediatric care your children receive is so important - and I know I can trust Dr. Kurtz and Advanced Pediatrics.

Christina, Centennial Office

My two sisters and I were patients of Dr. Ginsburg since our birth. When he moved to APA shortly after it was founded, we moved along with him. Now I am a parent and my three children have each been patients at Advanced Pediatrics since their birth. As a parent, I have always felt confident that he would recommend exactly the right care for my kids. I appreciate his reasonable approach to pediatric care. Never an alarmist, his recommendations are never too much or too little - but just exactly what my kids need. We try to see Dr. Ginsburg whenever we can, but all the providers at Advanced Pediatrics are great. We always know we are in good hands regardless of who we see! APA has always given our family a good sense of confidence and safety. I recommend Advanced Pediatrics to anyone looking for a pediatrician. Our neighborhood is lucky to have excellent pediatricians and children's medical care. We think Dr. Ginsburg is the best of the best!

Jennifer, Aurora Office

My husband and I, as well as my husband's siblings, were all patients of Dr. Freeman Ginsburg at APA when we were children. Now my husband and I bring our two sons to Advanced Pediatrics. We feel a strong bond with Dr. Ginsburg and the other doctors, nurses and staff. My favorite memory is when Dr. Ginsburg came to the hospital to see us when my oldest son was born. We will never take our children anywhere except Advanced Pediatrics! We recommend Advanced Pediatrics to everyone!

Lindsey, Aurora Office

My sister and I started out seeing Dr. Lee Thompson from birth; we continued to see him through adolescence. When I had my first daughter, she too was seen by Dr. Thompson, she continued to be a patient of his until she was five or six years old. Then I had my son, who also was seen by him, until he retired. My son didn't see him for long but my daughter remembers him and his kind and gentle hand. We now go and see Dr. Bradley Kurtz who is also amazing. Both my children have seen him for several years and just adore him. I refer people to Advanced Pediatrics all the time. I will continue to take my children here, as I do not believe I would even feel comfortable anywhere else. Thank you to the staff at Advanced Pediatrics for always making me feel comfortable and reassuring me when I needed it the most.

Rhianna, Aurora Office

Dr. Alison Auster is a great listener. She takes the time to analyze the situation and gives you the best advice in regards to your child's health. She is kind and caring. She knows my kids by name and their health histories (which is nice, so I don't have to repeat every time I see her the same story over and over again). I would recommend her to my friends and family. It is a pleasure to have such a knowledgeable and awesome pediatrician!!!
