He called us before our scheduled appointment to let us know about some extra testing he did not think we needed done. This was a great relief to us as we already knew our son, who is only 5, was stressed about what was going on. Avoiding unnecessary, somewhat invasive, testing was a blessing. We were so impressed with his compassion and bedside manner!
