I feel the exact same way as the last review! I brought him all my daughters tests that had been done. My daughter started stomach pain 8 months ago and is now worse, with other symptoms! He will not run any other tests and won't listen to me as a mother. It was tough to get MY thoughts in because he already gave his final thoughts and wouldn't listen"she needs to have therapy to manage her chronic pain!" Here's a thought, how about find the reason she's in pain!! I left crying with no hope.

If I could give zero starts, I would. We traveled from Az, desperate for an answer for our ill daughter. He promised to take an unbiased approach, admitting her for 5 days. Forgotten was the unbiased approach. All that was done was to review outside scans from months before, all of which he has before our arrival. Nothing but blood tests were perormed. Albeit, all abnormal, I didn't find out until I returned home, accessing her chart remotely. we experienced nothing but hostility and judgement
