I strongly do NOT recommend Dr. Allan Recto. He didn't want to check my child because he said, and I quote his exact words were, "To do the flu shot is very expensive, it's free for you because the government pays for it, but it's expensive." Therefor he did not want to run a test to see if my child has the flu. He also said "I just don't see the point", because I insisted on him doing so since my other child does have the flu. He was very unprofessional.
