We have been seeing the doctor for four years now. She helps us with knowing what other professionals to seek out. With therapies would be beneficial. What we can do at home as parents to help our son. She is kind, warm and simply amazing!

Dr D spent a lot of time in the first consultation visit understanding & discussing, and she was well prepared on my son's condition. So I trust her a lot

[...] by far one of the best physicians we see for our son. She is patient, sincere, and truly interested in our conversation. She is a huge asset to Valley.

Dr. D'Alessandro was so warm and welcoming, explained things in a way that was easy for me to understand and scheduled [...] at the same time that the person fitting him for braces was available, so I wouldn't have to have two appointments. That was SUCH a relief as navigating child orthotics can be scary and confusing, but I felt supported and informed leaving my visit. I cannot say enough great things about how well my visit went. She explained why [...] needed support, she provided ample anticipatory guidance, and made me feel as though this step in [...]s journey was a step in the right direction. She also gave me directions on how to use these orthotics after we get home and even some troubleshooting tips to ease [...] into using them.
