Only 2 wellness checks for our newborn, and so far this place is great. Well organized practice with friendly staff.Dr. Brent Cardwell took his time. Did not feel like he rushed the exam like some doctors have a habit of doing. He made sure we didn't leave with questions or concerns. We'll definitely continue by to bring our daughter here.

I always appreciate how Dr. Brent Cardwell spends time speaking directly to my boys helping them understand their health. He does not rush through the appointment and he explains things in a way even the kids can understand him. Our first pediatrician retired after 40 years and I was looking for a new doctor who was a male and who would be relatable. Dr. Cardwell has exceeded my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a pediatrician in the Cedar Park area.

I love this practice! We have been patients since 2017. It’s big enough we can usually get same day appointments for sick visits. I have also used the after hours clinic when needed, much preferred to urgent care! They are supportive of breast-feeding, even offering LC services and support groups. We used to see Dr Jennifer Cardwell who we adore. When she stepped away from clinical duties I was a little anxious, but soon found I had no reason to be as all the doctors and clinical staff are wonderful. Dr. Brent Cardwell really knows his stuff regarding ADHD, and we feel lucky to have him help navigate this with our child. The MAs do a great job giving injections that don’t seem to hurt much. The office staff keep things running smoothly for such a busy practice. 10/10!
