This doctor is a specialist for my son and has been very helpful with his over condition and alerting us to any thing to look for in the future as far as his condition.

When we found out our son had a Dermoid Cyst on his brain we were devastated. The staff at CHP was very knowledgeable and confident of a positive outcome. We had the best of care as usual. We are always well taken care of at CHP. All the doctors and nurses are wonderful!

Seems to be a good Dr but hard to tell for sure because he never stays long always seems to be in a hurry but is nice for the few minutes he's in the room
