Dr. Trachtman had a great rapport with my 5 yr old & made the exam fun. He seems to be very knowledgeable. He came highly recommended by several local professionals.

Dr. Trachtman was excellent with my one year old and her extremely nervous parents!!! He put us all at ease while also leaving me very confident in his ability.
