My son has numerous medical issues. I have seen more doctors, specialists, and hospitals than I can count in his 14 years. Dr. Pelavin is by far one of the best, most attentive, sincere, and knowledgeable doctors I have met on this very difficult journey. He truly made an impression on me and on the quality and future of my son's life. I had to wait 4 months for this appointment, but it was worth every bit of the wait.
