The doctor is a money hungry, he doesn't care about your child well being, all he cares about is how much money he is going to get out of you. I went for a second opinion and the problem didn't need a surgery like he claims. Horrible.

He took his time to listen to our concerns, he shared urology related problems he had with his own daughter, he spent a lot of time talking to us and made us feel comfortable with decisions we made.
