Dr. Aalbers is one of our Angels here on earth. He has been the only Dr. out of many we have seen that really listens to parents' concerns and takes them seriously, discusses family history in detail, and looks at the whole picture. He is the only Dr. who really looked at my child's movement and saw the problems I had reported and added some to our list. He was willing to test for rare conditions that could be an underlying cause, found that condition, and eliminated it with correct meds.

I am awaiting test results for my 7 y o but am already thankful for Dr. Aalbers. He said something about a possibility of a disorder that was rare; he suggested we could wait and watch awhile. He was patient to discuss this disorder and, with a little exploration of my family history, it became evident that there was more than enough reason to go ahead and test my son. I am hoping for answers and it's possible that my older son was misdiagnosed 20 years ago and both will benefit from the results

Love, Love, Love Dr. Aalbers. He did more for our son in the first visit than all of the other doctors had before. Dr. Aalbers is our favorite doctor and we have no problem driving from Sand Springs, OK to see him.

I have been searching for seven years to find someone to help my daughter. The instant Dr. Aalbers talked to my daughter and asked a few questions, he was very confident he knew what was going on. He explained everything in detail so we understood what needed to be done. I'm so blessed to have cross paths with him. Well recommend him to everyone!
