I do recommend *Dr. Linton. He is great. Always asks/answers questions professionally and gives me the latest medications he has had success with on other patients - Very knowledgeable.

I really appreciated the amount of time both *Dr. Linton and the nutritionist spent explaining and counseling with me.

The doctor told me that there wasn't much he could do for my child since he was young. I needed to keep doing what I was doing & to follow up with his primary doctor regularly.

The care provider gave us all kinds of negative feedback of things that we need to do to help our child instead of helping & encouraging us.
