Saw this doctor for an issue of chronic cosntipation with my toddler. Completely misdiagnosed my child, without performing any diagnostic tests/ lab work or X-rays. Prescribed not only incorrect but highly habit forming laxative medication. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone. Not to mention terrible bedside manner.
