Patient Comments (1)
Laguna Niguel, CA |
Great bedside manner but not the dr you want if you’re concerned your child might have other health issues. when I brought up concerns about my son possibly having food/environmental allergies he was dismissive and very uninformed about allergies in kids. after several appointments expressing this concern he gave us a referral. My son has peanut, egg, tree nut and environmental allergies. He was clueless to the eczema, asthma attacks, etc that are all signs of allergies in kids.
