She was very kind and very patient with my daughter as she has multiple other disabilities besides just possible neurodivergency. She's also blind and globally delayed as well. So a lot of patience is taken or needed when working with her and the doctor was great.

She's very easy to talk with and my son he felt comfortable with her in few Minutes of her evaluation. Very informative and me and my husband felt great the way she deal my son.

Well, she was a very good psychologist, she answered all of our questions. She listened to our feedback. She, you know, asked us about our daughter's daily routine and all the things like that when she heard and seen everything that that she needed, she gave my daughter a diagnosis, the thing on the spectrum, which is great, because we've been waiting for a long time for that. And she claim to us, you know, the things that we could do to, to help her out different resources, we could use to make sure that our daughter's, you know, getting getting the help that she needs and deserves, which was really nice. So, yeah.
