in Columbus, OH |
Dr. Backes is an amazing, well versed peds doctor, that has pretty much seen it all. My children have been patients for 8 1/2 years (there entire lives) and I would contribute some of their developmental success to him. As a parent, I would recommend Dr. Backes. Even if you need to drive to get to him, he's worth it and your child deserves a good doctor who is knowledgeable and caring.
