Do not take your child to see this Dr!!!! It was such a traumatic experience that my child has tremendous stress when she has to see a Dr or even knows if she has a Drs appointment. He misdiagnosed her condition 100%! DO NOT take your child to see this Dr!! We were warned about this Dr by my child's pediatrician but we had to see a neurologist asap. Huge mistake!!!

Went for son having mild seizures, and the min we walked in all he could talk about was how many behavioral problems he has and that he was stupid and border line retarded. I will not be back. Just drive the extra miles and go to Childrens and see a real dr.! I know my child has problems, we have a speech therapist, behavioral specialist, general dr. Needed a neurologist!

My child was having seizures he told my child that he was faking the seizures. He also told me and child that he needs to be seeing a psychiatrist not a neurologist. Myself and my child left very upset and we will not be returning to his office.

From the time he walked into the room, with NO understanding of our family situation,he immediately asked me why I wasn't sitting beside him (my ex-husband). I was standing beside my child, the patient,while she sat on the exam table and my ex was holding my other child. He chewed me out for 15 minutes and blamed her tics on me, and her home life with me, and my relationship with her dad. Of course ex was happy, loved the doctor bc of this.He has no idea what we've been through,I left in tears
