Dr Phelps is the kindest, most compassionate, knowledgeable doctor I have ever encountered. He doesn't make me feel like an idiot or have a superior attitude that a lot of doctors have. My kids ADORE him and he has always treated them and myself with respect. He actually LISTENS when we talk with him and he truly cares about his patients. He has (on several occasions) called us on his day off just to check on my sons if they had been sick or injured. I wish all doctors were just like him.
