the best Dr and staff
John is great! My son was diagnosed with T1D two years ago and is now 15. He has not been as diligent in checking his blood sugar as he needs to be, and John is great at being kind, but firm, to let my son know how important it is to check is blood sugar regularly. John answered my MANY questions and is extremely knowledgeable.
Dr. W. was respectful of our decision to use natural therapies.
The doctor was wonderful!! Never once did we feel rushed or that we werent important. He listened to us and took time with us and followed up with a phone call of daughters results.
Dr. W was very kind and patient. He interacted well with my daughter.
This was the first time we have seen John. we always have an awesome experience at children's hospital. Everyone is amazing.
