We have met with 3 different doctors and have had a great experience with all of them! I went to children neurology as a child and they only had one doctor. I would highly recommend them now.
Hi. I was extremely satisfied with our experience and feel like the doctor was very supportive as we're kind of going through a little bit of a scarier process with my daughter. He just encouraged me to take it, just stay where we are not like get 2 inches in ahead of myself. So and also, when I was writing him, I accidentally hit to, and I meant to hit 4 for one of the options. So but I just appreciate it that standpoint from the doctor. Thank you.
Dr. V is wonderful. He is intelligent, takes his time explaining everything and if your child needs surgery, he is the one to trust.
