in Greensboro, NC |
Dr. Hart is by far the very best doctor I've ever met! He is very attentive, knowledgeable, wonderful caring gentleman. We found Dr. Hart because of his video on the Enfamil Nutramigen baby formula webpage. My twin girls were on the formula for a few months and outgrew the CMA/MSPI. Now we have more questions and health issues and he and his staff are just wonderful! We drive from North Carolina to VA to see him with infant twins - that's no small feat - it's about a 2.5 hour drive.

I not only have worked with him professionally since he has arrived in Virginia, but also my son is his patient. He really cares about his patients and he spends a great deal of time explaining things. He encouraged patients to email him with questions years before it became standard practice. He is a great doctor.
