Dr Phillips is patient and knowledgeable. When you have a child that needs to be seen by a neurologist your nerves are already frazzled. You've probably already hit so many walls advocating for your child that you talk a mile a minute trying not to leave out any important details. My trust in doctors is being renewed. I feel he listened to everything. I walked out in relief after the first appointment with a new understanding. Our treatment is gentle for a child that seems to react to many meds.
Gig Harbor, WA |
Dr Phillips misdiagnosed my daughters epilepsy. It was poorly managed and his blantant apathy regarding her condition was unacceptable. Rather than admitting he didn't know how to treat her, he would prescribed useless medication at ineffective dosages just to appease me. If I had not sought a second opinion, I am certain my daughter would not be here today. He is arrogant and without empathy.

We have had the fortune of being with Dr. Phillips for 8 years and he has proven time and again that he is very compassionate, listens to us, and works with us to develop a treatment plan that works for us and our daughter. He is also on the cutting edge of pediatric neurology. I would recommend him to any parent looking for the best care for their child!
