    Dr. R. was great. He really takes the time to go through the level of detail needed to do an accurate diagnosis and goes over the information we needed. He was a bit late for our appointments but it's because he takes the time to spend with each patient that is needed instead of rushing to the next one. Our son was diagnosed with a very rare lung condition called NEHI (neuroendocrine hyperplasia in infancy) and Dr. R. was on top of it from the beginning. We're very grateful for his work.

    Ugggh, its an arrow to my heart, this incredible, and kind to my child physician doesn't have a higher rating. He is comprehensive. To say the least. Takes time, and notes, refers to the best. If it is YOUR kid, you want this doctor. My child is severely autistic, a former 20 oz preemie, so I know what a great doc is like.
