Very excellent doctor. Extremely thorough. My daughter had numerous issues with stomach, digestion. She has seizure disorder and on the autistic spectrum. He worked well with her and did a biopsy of her small intestine and discovered she had a rare malabsorption disorder. He saved her years of tests and meds by discovering this early on. Can't imagine any other doctors of this caliber in this area. We are very grateful. And definitely would recommend him.

he threatened to have my son taken away if i didn't stop breastfeeding him. he saw him about twice a week for months. what he missed was the problem was my son't head. he had sagittal suture craniosynostosis. once that was corrected my son gained weight like crazy. my experience is not isolated. i found a extremely large group of women who all had similar issues. he tries to make everyone stop breastfeeding. he even told me my son should be on baby food at 3m. stay far away from this doctor.
