    I would not recommend this doctor to anyone! I thought I was going to a doctor that loves to be challenged and/or thought higher then "taught lessons". He asked me what was wrong I started to tell him and while in mid sentence he look over at my daughter and asked her a question, not related to my visit (3x). At the end of our worthless appt. he dismissed me based solely on a 3 month old blood work and did not even take the time out to listen or assess my situation!!!
