I took my 5 year old daughter because I had concerns with her breathing during her sleep. My daughter had a hard time and got really nervous and scared once Dr. Bassila had to take the camera to look deep in her knows. As we know, this is an uncomfortable feeling. I believe that she did not numb my daughter correctly therefore could not do the exam properly. She tried to put the numbing again but it was too late. My daughter had lost it and the DR was rude with her and had no patience.
