What People Say About Dr. Steven Phillips, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Dr. Phillips is THE best. I wish he could be our neurologist and regular pediatrician. My daughter has been his patient for about 5 1/2 years now and I truly mean it when I say I cannot say enough good things about him and the care we’ve received. He has gone far above and beyond for us, on more than one occasion and we appreciate him very much.

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.

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!
