Patient Reviews (5)
Our child has been Dr. H's patient for a few years. He has always been gentle, kind and has given us hope when others didn't. Our child has a rare brain condition that very few doctors even know about. Not only does Dr. H know about it but he's also a specialist in it! Miranda, his nurse practitioner is also wonderful.

He doesn't wash his hands when touching my child's head! Who does that? He's incredibly rough with our child to the point of tears and his stitching looks sloppy. He allowed my child's condition get so bad, she was transferred to a different hospital even after we begged him to please give her a CT scan because her screaming indicated this was more than just her being fussy. She was taken in for surgery immediately and reprimanded for not doing more sooner! Not a doctor who cares for children!
Great bedside manner, great with kids. Super knowledgeable. He doesn't "talk down" to you the way other surgeons do and he doesn't mind if you ask a million questions. He has always take great care of our child. We travel far to see him because he is the best!
