Patient Comments (1)
in Roseville, ca |
My child has intracrannial brain hemmoraghing grade IV and III, both sides of the brain are damaged. Cerebral Palsey is also a diagnose. It was hard to find a good neurologist when we moved to the area. Until we found Dr Chretien. He is great. Very attentive and friendly. Answers all questions (write them down, it gets busy in the office). Helps with concerns. Easy to talk to. Never complains when you have a ton of forms needed for him to complete, orders testing. Great doctor. Long wait times.
