My husband and I traveled from Indianapolis, IN to come see Dr. Kabara for a second opinion. Her and her PA Jenna were amazing. They really took the time with us and made sure our concerns were heard and addressed. Even though we did not leave with a diagnosis per say we felt much better as we had a game plan in place. I thank them for their time and concern. Definitely glad we made the 6hour trip!

I loved meeting dr. Tyler kabara! the only complaint that I have is that our appointment was at 10:15 and we weren't put into a room until 11:40. With a 14 month old it is hard to keep her occupied in a waiting room for over and hour and a half. other than that I loved the doctor and the nurses!!

Provider was a little confusing. Stated 5 years ago she would've talked us into surgery for our child, but now she's more reserved. No tests ordered. Was going to let us decide on if we wanted an MRI, then decided not too. Now, we have to wait 6 months. And it wasn't very nice when she stated, "she doesn't expect us to know the words she is saying."

The dr. had given us as a family the utmost attention and was genuinely thrilled how far our daughter had come artistically having to use her non-dominate hand since the stroke.

Thank you for saving my son! I'm so happy we may not have to come back; however, admittedly, I'm going to miss you. You all are AWESOME! God bless you!
