So awesome, i’ve been here twice with my one year-old daughter, and everyone who works here is beyond friendly and has awesome bedside manner. The inside is brand new and super cute. 10 times better than my last pediatrician!

This place is amazing. We met with the NP who was very helpful in finding out what was wrong with my child and offering treatment options. There was no wait. Place was clean. The nurse at the front desk was so nice too. Everyone was so welcoming. Highly recommend Blue Wave.

Visiting Florida when my little guy woke up not feeling great. We found this place and are glad we did. They are so friendly and accommodating and were able to see us right away.

This clinic was great! I had to take my 10 month old son yesterday an hour before they closed and they were nothing but helpful! It wasn't crowded at all probably due to the late visit so they were quick and efficient for us. I believe they are still working with insurance contracts since they are still so new but if you are in network with them this is a great option for after hours or regular hours care for you little ones!

We just left the office and it was a wonderful experience! It seems we found the practice we were looking for! My family chooses to do an alternative vaccine schedule and we didn’t feel pressured when discussing this. My 16 month old felt very at ease with all of the friendly staff. Nurse practitioner Donna was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The owner, office manager, and receptionist are super nice. They offer walk in sick visits, primary care, weekend and evening hours. They even have pediatric physical therapy and mommy and me yoga! What more can you ask for?!

We drove by this building almost every day while it was being renovated so when we saw it had opened, we took our daughter there to try it out.There was ZERO line, which was surprising even for a brand new pediatric office because so many other places in town are either not accepting new patients or have long wait times.The spaces are decorated in a way that made my daughter feel like she was at an indoor playground instead or a scary doctor office. About an hour after we left my kid said she wanted to go back, which is the first time she has ever said that about a medical office.The lady at the front desk and the nurse who saw my daughter were both friendly and good with her. A lot of the medical equipment has animals and bright colors to make them less intimidating.The only thing I noticed in retrospect is they did not discuss pricing upfront and when we were done they charged us $150. I see from one of the other reviews that another parent was quoted $70 upfront and then ended up being charged over $100 at the end of the visit and was told it was based on time the provider is with the kid. The actual nurse was with our kid for about 10 minutes. So their pricing model not being transparent is about the only downside.

I've taken my kids here twice now and both times we had a great experience. My 3 year old needed stitches removed from her finger and that went great. My 4 year old has been not feeling well for awhile so I brought her in to get checked out. All the staff have been very helpful and friendly both times we were here and were very sweet with my kids as well. I will definitely come back again.

We went here for an allergic reaction to a sting. The service was so prompt and both the nurse and the doctor were so kind and efficient. Explained everything thoroughly, gave us options and got us in and out quickly. Would absolutely recommend.
