Dr Garfinkle is very professional and kid friendly at the same time. She's likeable and kids seem to feel right at home with her. I can't say enough about our experience with her over the past 2.5 years. All positive. Receptionist is very nice and welcoming, wait time is minimal, less than 10 minutes. Results for my son have been very good, she's addressed all of the concerns and continues to closely monitor his progress. I would definitely refer friends to her.
