This is my sons first time seeing this doctor. Never has he had a doctor that made him feel so uncomfortable and made him feel like he was on trial. Very impersonal, !!!. Not good for adolestants. Also changed meds 9n him that does not work in which makes me furious. Does not know how to listen or talk to anyone.

She does not let you talk. It's like what you say does not matter to her. Very firm with talking which actually made my child cry. Her staff is very rude and unprofessional. Knowing they are working with children and not wild animals doesn't matter to them. My child is not a wild animal and should be treated with kindness and respect. The nurse there wouldn't know the first thing about how to treat a child nor an adult if it was taught to her. They either need to be retrained or quit their jobs.

I was vey disappointed with my experience. She was unfriendly and treated my child and myself with little respect. I question her skills. I would never return to her and would never recommend her to anyone.
