dr.athay went above and beyond in answering our questions, showing concern for our 1st time parent questions, giving us confidence in a game plan, and interesting with our baby. we swapped doctors in the hope that we would find a doctor that genuinely listened to our concerns, explained things throughly, and not judge or look down upon us. Dr athay stayed with us for close to an hour answering questions and we could not be more grateful. we left feeling confident and more importantly with a smiling baby.
