Patient Comments (3)

I was not happy with my last visit with him & I feel sorry for all the ppl in Columbus bc they have nowhere else to go to take their children. Unfortunately I'm getting a second opinion w/ Childrens of Atl He told me that it would be child abuse if i didn't put my son on Depekote (very hard drug)...more

Dr. McCarty, Nurse Melissa, and the secretary are so so amazing. They listened to me about my concerns with my son when no one else would. I am grateful that they listened and how compassionate they are!!
