I absolutely ADORED the doctor who saw my son, I believe her name was Dr. Adelekan. She spoke to him so caring and attentively, while also addressing our concerns as parents. She is amazing. I wish she could be his full time pediatrician. She's by far the best doctor either of my children have had.
