Dr. Paschen displays genuine joy in getting to work with children. It was so fun to hear him laugh in response to my child getting the giggles during her appointment. He shows all of our children such kindness, playfulness, patience, and respect. He shows the same to us as parents as he consistently takes time to explain things, encourage our questions, and encourage us for the positive outcomes he is seeing.

Dr. John Paschen has been our pediatrician for more than 6 years and he has been always a great provider for us. He is an amazing expert in his field, he is aware of what's going on with our kids when we visit him, and he always recommends the best treatment. Whatever he has told us regarding our kids' health during each visit, it came true and his treatments always worked. He is the best doctor we have ever seen. We are very glad to have him.

The Doctor we saw for my daughter today was knowledgeable, caring and very personable. I felt very comfortable with his care of my daughter and appreciated his asking questions directly to her. I am very pleased with the quality of care he gave her.

In simple words, he is an excellent pediatrician!

Dr. Paschen and his nurse were very patient and understanding at our visit. It was supposed to be just a nurse visit for a vaccination, but turned into a doctor visit. We truly value Dr. Paschen's opinion and wanted him involved with our decision. We appreciate the referral and the care received at McFarland Clinic Pediatrics.

Dr. Paschen is not my daughters PCP, however she needed to be seen right away and Dr. Paschen had an opening for her to be seen. He was very kind and thorough. He took his time and asked questions and answered my questions. He took time to explain and urge my daughter to get the Covid vaccine. Thank you Dr. Paschen for your extraordinary care!
