He was in and out within 10 minutes and I didn't get the questions I had answered at all. I felt like since we weren't his patient originally he didn't have the care he should have with us. We drive over 2 hours for the doctor and it was very frustrating.

We LOVE Dr Phillips. There are no words to relay our gratitude and appreciation for him and the journey we've been on with him for the last 5 years. Seeing my daughter in the big chair so at ease with her Dr is heart melting. He's given her, her voice literally.
