Patient Comments (2)
East Elmhurst, NY |
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! Make sure you push to get a helmet asap, their head will not fix itself! Don't wait until it's too late!!

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