I travel over one hour (each way) passing many other md's along the way - to see Dr Sylvester for my daughter - I choose her because I trust her (she has earned our trust). She is extremely skilled and excellent with my daughter. I would NOT go to anyone else.

Staff at the Pine Center are always courteous and respectful. They seem aware of and empathetic to my son's special needs and always interact appropriately with him. Dr. Sylvester inspires confidence and puts my son at ease. She always to make our experience as trouble free as possible.
