Dr. Akerman is excellent but mrs. Bertha to me does not give good care is very despot to try. I have a special child who needs a lot of referrals and mrs. Know me to say "I'm tired of giving referrals" and fill the form for the WIC she tell me for this is 3 weeks in advance. That's absurd to me. ð Maybe it is time that Mrs retire
