Dr. Routman worked with my son who had a very difficult situation and performed surgery. He was very kind, patient and made sure all our questions were answered. He took the time to arrange the other Doctors who would have to assist in my sons surgery and treats my son with such patience, focus and diligence. We love this practice!!

While being very professional, Dr Routemant has a most pleasant personality, easy to talk to and very informative on health tips connected with my problem.
