Excellent Doctor

I had a very hard time with getting a diagnosis for my son. Once we met Dr. Leshner our lives seem a little more clear. Understanding the condition and being able to live with it. I really feel comfortable talking to Dr. Leshner and my son does to. It's important to have a doctor who listens and gives you the information you need to educate yourself
