Doctor was great! Fellow, not so much. While sitting near her, she began to talk to a student that came in with her about my son like I wasn't there! (Very upsetting and poor bedside manner)

DrB really seemed to understand our daughter right away, she warmed up to him easily, he listened to me, was personable, and I respect how knowledgeable he seems and the experience he has.
