Dr. Duby & the staff in the Developmental Pediatric Department are the best. Thanks.

star star star star star

I would like to say that Dr. Duby was very kind, patient, compassionate very competent intelligent and made the parents feel as if the questions that they were asking me where legitimate questions, versus making the parents feel like they were incompetent or doesn't know what they're doing or saying. He was very patient with my child, who is very hyper 3 year old toddler. He explained things and ways that I was able to understand and look at some different perspective. He reassured me about some diagnosis that, you know, other medical staff had tried to put on my child, and he was just very, very, very patient. And that is, I'm very grateful for that experience because a lot of providers like to rush you through. They would say what they have to say and just leave out the room and I
