His service is very very expensive. So make sure you really need his help, otherwise don't go. Also, he doesn't listen and take seriously patients much, kinda know-it-all type. I wouldn't mind if he had cured my son but guess what, he didn't have any diagnosis for my 6 year old son's headache so for us, it was a big waste of money and time.

My son saw dr guarding last year. As we did not have acceptable insurance, my mom paid for his visits as my husband was not working. My son never used meds before. The med he prescribe worked for two months then made him anxious and violent. Dante had autism yet this man gave him adhd med. As a parent, I was worried and upset. Instead of suggesting a difference med, he refused to see us after grabbing fees. He said we should see a psychiatrist. I do not respect this man at all.
