Words cannot express the sincere gratitude and respect I have for Dr. Pistorius and his staff. My child has a complex condition and from day one he fought for him, advocated for him, and supported my family in every way in caring for my son. With the help of God, my son has overcome many hurdles through working with Dr. Pistorius and his staff. They listen, they respond, they care and perform the tasks as if it is second nature. That's what you call genuine care that leads to healing!
