Dr. Labadie was exceptional. He took time to explain the issues for me and directly explained what was happening to my son. He listened to my concerns and then gave his undivided attention to my son so that my son could talk through his own feelings and concerns. We cannot say enough how much we appreciate Dr. Labadie's skills, his professionalism, and his honest concern and compassion.
