She was great and explained everything about our child's GI issues. We had a ton of questions and she was reassuring and listened to our long list of concerns. She answered every one and then gave us a list of things to expect.

Do not listen to her advice. She oversteps her area of expertise. She told us our 10 month old would not need to go under for his procedure, but when we showed up at the OR, the anesthesiologist said he would need to. We may have chosen not to it if we had known. When I followed up because of his extreme gas, she told me to feed him rice and oats with prunes every meal. It turns out those are high FPIES foods and prunes cause gas. She's a poor listener and talks down to clients.
