This physician ignored everything I had to say about my daughter. I knew she had apnea but was told there was no way she could because her apnea alarm never went off. The sleep study we had done at a different hospital proved her wrong, she had an AHI of 10!!. Was told I need it take her off breastmilk and put her on formula, for her weight issues. Because I refused she basically told me there was nothing she could do for me. I would never recommend her!!! Doesnt listen to patients
