Parent Feedback

Dr. vlam is hands down the best, she always takes extra time to make kids feel comfortable,very good at explaining things and isn't afraid to share her knowledge, always finds a way to help every one. We have been seeing her for 9 years and travel an hour each way to do so. Thanks Dr. vlam!
