I have been bringing my child here since August and all they continue so is test her...not giving me any answers...when checking her pt portal the only things listed are her medications, however, they are incorrect. I still do not have a plan of care for her and she continues to be having the same issues.

Probably gets too personal when he should let the medication do the work.
