Dr. Underwood is fantastic. We have been taking our son to her for about a year now and have seen him make a great deal of progress. She was very knowledgeable about the treatments but was able to clearly explain what to expect without getting supper technical. The best part is that she isn’t only treating my son as just someone with some symptoms that needs to be fixed but instead is working with my son, my husband and I to address the greater issues.

She filled me with hope yet it was struck down. She claimed to know a lot about the medication I was out on yet almost all she said proved to be false. Recently left because she didn't listen to my concerns or opinions. She convinced me to go on medication but all promises fell through.
