Hands down one of the best experiences I personally had, it's not easy taking a child to talk about weight and health. She's a phenomenal doctor, the way she explained it, talked about it, never made him feel bad about anything or me feel bad about anything and made us feel empowered and ready to educate ourselves better with what we put into her body, the doctor, the nurse everybody from the front desk back was absolute phenomenal, like hands down, can't even express to than that send a voicemail how amazing and incredible that whole experience was and how much time they took to really get to know him. I absolutely loved it, I would recommend them 1000 times over to other families.
