Hands down one of the best doctors I have ever met. I have been through a lot of GI doctors with my condition and have a hard time trusting they know what they are talking about and will help me. This provider absolutely knew her stuff and had all the kindness and professionalism to boot! I rarely meet caregivers who understand the complexity of rare conditions. She is amazing!

The doctor asked a lot of questions, listened to the answers, and answered our questions. She was very sympathetic to the sensitive nature of my son's problems and seemed to care about his issues
