BE CAREFUL!!!! DO NOT SEE this doctor !!! He gets your money a fortune btw (u$ 600.00), and disappears!!! does not reply your emails, messages, or even calls !!! if he says he will follow up day by day... be prepared... this does not happen... you feel humiliated expecting that your kid will get help, and you get nothing... nothing !!!! my son got worse after seeing him and he does not care at all...he disappeared. shame shame shame... how come a doctor that is supposed to help an autistic kid, disappears... worst experience ever... he simply faded away !!!! do not wish any family to go thru the same experience we had... you feel like the scammer or a swindler got your money promising things and got away with it... by the way, i make my self available to answer any questions you my have... i am not hiding at all. disgusting !!!
