Listened to concerns and was able to help with a reference to another department even though he could not personally help.

We really felt that this neurosurgeon listened thoroughly to my son's concerns and all of his questions. You know, you could tell that he really cared and did everything possible that he could to help my son alleviate his anxiety, his concerns, answer his questions, and even put in some referrals for other providers to help further along with my son's care. We greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
