Dr. Wooten would explain things clearly and ask about my thoughts. He also never seemed like he was in a rush to get to his next appointment.

We think Dr Wooten is the top of his field and we're extremely grateful our daughter gets to see him. He's kind and patient with the difficulties an exam can present when my daughter doesn't understand what's happening because of her disabilities. Also, the way he speaks to me about my child (first person language, respect for individuality). He should teach a course on how to speak in this way, not that he needs anything else added to his calendar. He's amazing and we tell everyone we know.
