I would not recommend this doctor. He was a hour and half late for a one year olds surgery and then had more children to do after hers which was pushing everyone back. Also we went back for a Follow up after she had surgery and since it was 10 days out we had to pay a copay for him to look in her ears and say they were "fine" even tho we were going to her family doctor right after for a well check which she could of told me the same. I will tell everyone I know including doctors office not to go
