ratings and reviews
It's always great experiences I feel supported in my child's health and well being
He is very kind, listens to every question and has the answers along with studies to back it up.
He was very rude
They were a pleasure to see. My son has very bad needle phobia and they were able to work with him in a way that allowed him to peacefully take his scratch test. They even showed great follow up to my sons secondary reaction to ragweed. They were able to do most of the follow up online and over the phone and it was wonderful dealing with them.
