My son is ASD and Dr Kokash is always so good and patient with him

Worst doctor I have ever come into contact with. Inpatient - when my child was in the PICU suffering badly with neuro storming we kept being told that neurology was called to consult but they never came. Outpatient follow-ups, no bedside manner, blows off concerns, and we always have some issue with med refills. ALWAYS. My advice go to Waco to the Cook's clinic there and avoid S&W pediatric neurology altogether.

Dr Kakash was mediocre at best. My daughter has epilepsy and her seizures were medicated but never were managed completely. He never spent more than 5 minutes with her. The last straw was when he wouldn't refill her prescriptions because we missed her appointment. We made another one but it was 8 days out and he still wouldn't do even an 8 day refill. Awful dr!! Who does this? What about the oath Drs take before practicing medicine? If my daughter has a seizure and injures herself I will sue him
