Do not use him!!! He is horrible!! He is lazy and says your kid is constipated. Say he needs to do an upper endoscopy even though pain is nowhere near throats and stomach area. Has kids lined up like cattle day if surgery bc it only takes 10 minutes per kid and suprisehe saw nothing. I'm sure he makes millions from scared parents. We saw him 5 times, I begged him to do extra labs, he said it wasn't necessary. My kid was so miserable. I switched drs he did a stool test it was campylobacter/yeast
