We love Dr. King. She always takes her time and acts like you're her only patient. She explains everything. She truly cares about all of her patients.

Thank you for your time and attention. My son is a thinker so when you help him see his options it helps him make better decisions. That's what he needs to make life changes. You were kind and didn't say "no don't eat that" but instead helped him see better choices for himself.
