After 8 months of seeing various doctors and pediatric demonologists through Park Nicollett, this is the only practice that offered different treatments, advice, and that I felt listened to my concerns about the horrible case of Mollescum that my baby had caught. Other doctors and dermatologists said it will go away on its own after 6 months to 4 years. They told me there wasn’t much I could do to prevent my baby giving it to his sibling or other children in our lives beside always covering him in long sleeves or bandages, while it continued to spread all over his body. Dr. Hook gave us treatment our first visit and offered several modes of action. She is very knowledgeable and was extremely gentle and warm with my baby. I highly recommend seeing her for any pediatric dermatology needs, especially Mollescum. Dr. Hook and her nurse provided the kindest most professional healthcare we have received.
