The doctor seemed very informative. Now no treatment was discussed, yet. He wanted to gather more info before moving forward.

I loved the way he treat my daughter. She is very people pushing when she doesn't like a doctor, but she was very talkative and laughing with him. I loved the time he took to see her and take decisions in what is best for her health!!!!

The doctor was very informative, didn't rush, seemed concerned and treated my son as an individual- not like every other patient or that his concerns weren't valid. I really appreciated that. This doctor also is the only one I've ever seen read my child record.
