After nearly a decade of trusting this baffoon with my children and myself I realize several things: 1) he has no grasp on proper diagnosis completely missing the autism spectrum diagnosis on three of my four kids and 2) he over medicates often changing 2-4 prescriptions at a time so neither you or he has any chance of knowing what is or isn't working 3) he is unreliable often cancelling appointments last minute leaving you hanging without proper care
