I had concerns about my child and at first based on my responses they weren't significant enough to merit an evaluation after the visit she took a second look at his records and called me back and recommended a referral for an evaluation. It showed that she respected my concern enough to take a second long. She's also been helpful with the other kids. The only challenge is sometimes I have to call once to make sure the correct scripts sent to the right place.

Saw her this past week in January 2016 for a foot condition. She helped me with some medication and stopped it from bleeding. She was very nice.
