    Great manner & put my son at ease & has a great way of chatting with him. Very straightforward about his condition and we left feeling good.

  • Sep 13, 2019

    We love how sweet everyone was to our son and how they went above and beyond to make him feel safe and made his experience special to him. Even to go as far as to call him by his self appointed nick name, even though it was super strange. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

    It was a good visit overall. Although the doctor jumped to surgery very fast which was scary. We weren’t in the office long less than 5 mins. So it was just a fast diagnosis but he was kind and very helpful.
