Dr Ansel was requested to give a second opinion regarding our complex little guy ( speech delay, motor delay, social delay). Dr. Ansel walked into our appointment announced that he would not be evaluating our guy, but would instead treat this as a counseling appointment for me - mom. After 45 minutes of condescending lectures and comments that made it clear that he had no even glanced at our kiddos file, I left in tears. I will be writing a formal letter of complaint.

I was extremely disappointed in our evaluation with Dr Ansel. He refused to review any of our documents. He was glib. After coming up with a diagnosis refused to entertain any other thoughts. I was devastated as I waited 8 months for our son to see him. At our return apt he began to look at his watch after 10 minutes.
