    Dr Madison has been my son's endo for the last 8 years. She's caring, warm, and funny. Yet she will tell it like it is when needed. We really enjoy seeing Dr Madison, so much in fact that my son asks when she's going to be attending Gales Creek Camp in the hopes of attending at the same time, every single year.

  • Sep 07, 2018

    The last appointment was better than the appointments we've had in the past. Dr. Maddison has a strange bedside manner. She laughs a lot went kind of has a nervous laugh when she's giving very significant information about pretty serious issues with our kid and just seems a little nervous so while I think things that I appreciate are that her consistency of recommendations from across our meeting and her ability to explain the issues it's mostly the interpersonal communication skills and sort of nervous*
