He was very condescending and rude. Didn't listen to any concerns I had and when I addressed my concerns he dismissed them as If they weren't valid. I know my sonI know normal and not normalDr Werkhaven did not care what so ever.

His bedside manner was terrible. He was unfriendly, cold, mumbled, and made my daughter cry. We will not be back.
