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

The dr. put me at ease & explained my son's issue better than any provider has thus far (frankly, it has befuddled most practitioners prior to this visit).
