Dana was amazing. She worked quickly and efficiently with our screaming toddler. She knew he wasn't happy but was able to make a diagnosis and ensure us everything was in working order when it came to his organs.
She was wonderful. She was so patient and gentle with my son who's anxiety was pretty high going in. She was very thorough and explained everything I could have needed without asking. I would not hesitate to see her again and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a pediatric urologist.
We had a wonderful experience in her office. She made my son very comfortable discussing an uncomfortable issue, and we both felt so much better after the exam. She put us both at ease, assured us that his issue is not out of the ordinary, and that it will, in fact, resolve, which was quite reassuring. As we walked out of her office, my son looked at me and said, "She's really nice!"
I am in awe of how attentive and friendly and knowledgeable the care provider was. She listened, paused, and then answered. From her answers, I know she was thinking about my question before answering. I was so impressed that she gave equal attention to my questions as well as my son's questions. Her answers/suggestions provided us with options that we could decide as a family. She was very efficient and comforting while examining my son. I am very impressed by this care provider.
