Dr. DeWitt was wonderful! She was very patient with our son who was having a difficult time adjusting to a new environment. She listened to us and to him. She has a very calming voice and approach.

I would recommended this provider with family and friends and I would prefer that we have a lot more time with an appointment, you know, so I prefer that. A longer time so my daughter can feel comfortable with the provider and so she can feel comfortable with us coming back. So you want her to be I want my daughter to be as comfortable as possible and also take the time out to talk with me as well.
