I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Carrasco. He saved my daughter's life when she was diagnosed with P.A.N.D.A's. He was the first doctor to give her a diagnosis and a successful treatment plan. His care and treatment offered immediate solutions and his predictions about the resolution was right on target. She is now a fully healthy, successful, thriving teenage daughter. I can't begin to thank him but we will always remember him as the doctor that literally saved her.
