*Dr. Burnette recommended our son to UDW. No diagnosis yet - but much more genetic info.. Without *Dr. Burnette wouldn't have been possible. Better care/understanding than Boston Children's.

*Dr. Burnette actually listened to our situation and did a great job giving me hope. He made sure I had emergency medication for my son and no other doctor yet has done this.
