  • Sunset on a fall afternoon with history and heroes. Very moving tribute to men who fought for what they believed in. No matter what these monuments are something to see for their art if nothing else. 
  • Definitely, not to be missed, when in Richmond. Very impressive boulevard with many beautiful statues and old houses. 
  • This formal avenue contains a series of monuments honoring Virginians from Robert E. Lee to Arther Ashe. The avenue has beautiful late 19th and early 20th c. row houses and mansions along it. A wonder...  read more »
  • My three children 6,8,10 are seen by these pediatricians. I love their small practice. Their office staff is very kind as well. We have had random things crop up with our childrens' health and every time they have managed and cared for them beautifully. Thank you!
  • The staff is nice and very easy to talk to. They have a sick side and a regular check up side which is nice! Easy to get in on sick visits and open Saturdays!
  • I would definitely recommend this office to anyone. When I first had my daughter (first child) I was definitely paranoid and ran up there quite often. The office staff, nurses, and doctors are all very polite. They truly seem to be happy to see your child, they make you feel like you are their only patient, and they honestly just treat you like family. After having my daughter there was an issue that concerned me. Various doctors in the hospital told me it was nothing to worry about. A doctor at monument avenue pediatrics got me an appointment that night to have a scan done. I truly appreciated that she took it so seriously and wanted to ease my mind. It meant a lot. Overall it's a great doctors office. I will end by saying I LOVE how when you call you speak with a real person. The small things mean the most and this office pays attention to detail. My only problem is the office is very outdated and not super pleasing to look at, but hey, they treat me and my daughter very well. I can definitely deal with the 90's theme and decor. Lol
  • I have three children, 18, 14 and 10. The practice was wonderful when my oldest was born and when my middle child was born, however, in the past few years, the've had a lot of turnover with their doctors. Dr. Schweiker has been there a while, but she is apparently too busy these days and I can rarely get an appointment with her, whom my middle child and youngest child used to see on a regular basis. My youngest takes a medication that we have to get filled monthly, and we have to call the office each month for them to write a new script. Recently, they've messed up the dosage, in which case, we had to wait another day for a doctor to write a new script and we've had to wait days for them to write the prescription. Anyway, in my opinion, this used to be a wonderful small practice, but things have changed, and not for the better!
  • We switched to Dr. Schweiker within my son's first year after a bad experience with an extremely unprofessional pediatrician in Eastern Henrico county. 15 years and 3 children later, I still drive way out of my way (from New Kent) :) to see the best Pediatrician and the only Physician that I would entrust with my children. They all have Asthma and she has an amazing bedside manner not to mention -I feel like she is part of my family as I do with her essential staff who has ALWAYS gone above and beyond to just being a great staff to deal with in serious times of need!!
