Very good experience and understood during exam our concerns of my child and talked with both parents & child of results and things our child can do to improve.

My teenage daughter felt validated and that meant the world to both of us. Teenagers already feel unimportant and her diagnosis can look like teenage drama. Dr. Dees was interested and respectful at every turn, easy to talk to-couldn't be happier that we were assigned to her. My daughter told me immediately that she finally felt like someone was trying to help.

The cardiologist that my son saw was great! She did an excellent job of explaining the concerns that she had with his heart, and potential course of action, if the issues did not resolve on their own.
