Why do moms like you trust Dr. Bou Pediatrics?
My husband and I both work in healthcare and can honestly tell you that Dr. Bou is a great doctor! We recently moved to the Wesley Chapel area and are so happy to have found his new office. We rarely have to wait longer than a few minutes to see him for our appointment. He has great bedside manner and he takes the time to answer all of our questions which is great for this first time Mom. The text reminders about appointments are also very helpful! His front desk staff is very pleasant, and NP Erika is very good too!

What Our Patients Think
"My boyfriend has seen Dr. Bou since childhood and now that we have a child, he has seen him since birth and is the best! I recommend them to anyone! They're all awesome and I've never had a problem getting an appointment or help asking a question is a breeze he makes it so comfortable."

"I absolutely love Dr. Bou. We had somewhat of a scare with my son these past couple of days and Dr. Bou took the time to research what was wrong with him and called me personally to explain it. We went back today so he could explain more, and he answered every question we had and didn't make us feel rushed at all. I cannot express how appreciative we are of everything he has done to help my son."
-Sarah P. on Google Reviews
"Dr. Bou and his staff are amazing as always. The Wesley Chapel office is so new and inviting. We normally go to the Plant City office because we live in town. However, the Wesley Chapel location is very easily accessible for us as well. We will travel to any office as long as we can see Dr. Bou!"
