    Definitely in the top 1% of doctors I've encountered. Able to explain everything very clearly, puts parents and children alike at ease. Clearly an expert in his field. Complete faith in his judgement. Couldn't recommend him more highly. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars! Only suggestion for improvement: considering giving chocolate :-)
