I have known Dr. Platt for 30 years as we attended medical school together. If he wasn't the top student in our class of over 200 future doctors I don't know who was.

My son has seen Dr Platt since he was 8 months old (not yrs). He was born early, and to this day -age 24 yrs old- he has great eye site and still wears glasses. He is an excellent communicator with kids, and his team does a great job. His surgery skills are by far the best in town. 5 stars +
