    Dr. Guillermo Philipps is the best of the best and we can’t pay enough praises about him. He pulled his chair up in front of my 22yr old son at his last appointment with him and listened intently as my son spoke and told a story. He was truly listening and pay ing attention to him. As a parent, I appreciate the respect he has always shown both myself and my son. Thank you.

    Dr. Phillips did not minimize my concerns, and took the time to show me the images from my daughter's MRIs and explain what he was seeing. He also was honest and reassuring, and understood the struggle parents of kids with delays face when prioritizing therapi es.
