Dr. Gee is the amazing doctor who ordered a test that led to one of my children being diagnosed with a life threatening illness. Without Dr. Gees attention to detail and personal knowledge of his patients, my child’s minimal symptoms almost surely would have gone unnoticed for countless more, precious weeks, potentially lessening his chances of survival.
To anyone looking for a highly qualified, caring and sincere pediatrician with equally amazing staff, I highly recommend Dr. David Gee.
