First person that my son likes to talk to! He has been through multiple counselors.

The doctor was very courteous, and patient and explained things very well. The doctor took lots of time to try to figure out my daughter's issues, and to go lots of solutions on how she can help fix some of her sleeping issues. He was very nice. He asked lots of questions and was available for us to ask her questions, and also gave us permission to call anytime if we thought of something else or something came up, which I appreciated. And overall I thought that he was excellent.

Need to listen to the parents concerns more clearly

Dr. Sinclair did an amazing job of connecting on a personal level with my 14 year old son. He embodies all that a doctor should be, and I was super impressed that he took the time to care and to really listen in order to assist my son in taking personal responsibility for retraining his brain to see the value of creating healthier sleep patterns. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.
