Dr. Gammeltoft, may be very smart, but lack any sort of good bedside manner. He also did not show any concern over my sons neuromusclar issue, just said "well it should get better."He also told my son that he was not involved enough activities in school and that I should make do more. Everything we said seemed to be discounted and we we explained issue with ability to perform some actions he said, "why did you do that for him, he should be able to do it." when his symptoms clearly prevented it

Very thorough in examining my son. Kind and knowledgeable.
