Worried parent

Dr. Day was warm and kind from the minute he walked in the room. He has a team that you are able to talk to whenever you want. He doesn't treat you like a patient, he treats you like someone He has known for a while. He listens to every word you have to say. He puts a worried parent at ease, I went to a child neurologist in Sacramento before Dr. Day and Dr.Day is leaps and bounds better. If i had to refer a friend to a child neurologist I would without a doubt give the this doctors name.
