    He was very patient and kind. Not only helped me understand my daughter's overall diagnosis, but aspects of it and some testing done that were poorly explained by another office. He showed genuine kindness and concern towards my daughter. He was very gentle, and she didn't fuss or get upset at all.

    My child saw Dr. Thabet and the experience was less than stellar. He wanted us to come back every two months (which I believed was for more office visit pay) He stated that her eeg really didn't show seizure activity and I didn't believe him as a better more experienced doctor in WI diagnosed absence seizure. Long story short go to UnityPoint Peds Neurology at Blank as the doctors there are on top of their A game provide better care and offered to do an MRI if the new medication does not work.
