Best doctor I have seen for my son since birth, explained what he did and his thoughts throughout and also put my mind at ease that my son did have an allergy when GP at home was very dismissive. I appreciate his time and doing the allergy test in this appointment. I will be leaving with a very clear idea on how to proceed with my sons allergy, diet and appointments.
