So this is our third go around seeing this provider, and he is amazing. My son loves him. I like the way he comes into the room, he asks him questions, he asks me questions, he asked him about the sports that he plays, he assured my son that he can help him achieve to the max when he's on the field, and my son loves it. It's hard for my son to have people that he openly talks to, but he actually enjoys talking to this physician, because not only do they talked about things that my son is looking forward to on the field, and his performance, but he actually knows the different positions of soccer, and tells him how he has older guys that play, and he still helps them as well throughout their college career. So, my son is really excited. He does everything the Dr tells him to do. As soon as he got the medication, he was ready to start it, even though he wasn't
