I would never recommend this so called doctor who is really a quack. Please investigate and do your research before giving in to your pediatrician's referral. This is garbage city.

Heavily booked, my child was not treated properly and now has to suffer the consequences for the rest of his life. Were not given the proper recommendations and followed his advice, and did not seek another doctor's opinions until too late. If your child has flat head, do not come to this office!...Read More

The place smells bad. Wants patients hopped on medication and doesn't show much interest in the child's needs
