"Dr. Medhat took the time to listen to my concerns and found the lip and tongue tie that had previously been diagnosed as reflux, overactive letdown, colic, and dairy intolerance.The procedure was quick and my son acted as if nothing had happened. The only thing he disliked was the numbing stuff before his stretches. Once we stopped that he was happy to participate in the lip and tongue stretches.
I am so happy I didn't give up and found a doctor that would take the time to listen instead of rushing me out to see another patient.
Worth the hour drive every visit." Jen McMillon
