    We LOVE *Dr. Petty!

    Dr. Petty is outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about him. The care and concern he showed for our baby, the empathy for our situation and how scared/nervous I was about her surgery, the time he spent with us (I never felt like he was rushing to get to his next appt, rather that he would have spent hours with us if we needed it), how he went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable with her surgical procedures, and then how he personally called us to follow-up a few days after her surgery - he didn't have someone else call, he PERSONALLY called, taking time out of his incredibly busy schedule - just amazing care and compassion. He gained my trust (which is hard to come by, as I am also in the medical field), and I truly trust his medical expertise. My daughter means absolutely everything to me, so to say I would recommend him to others and continue to see him for our family's care is the best accolade I can give.

    Dr. Petty and his team were amazing. We hope we do not have to use him again, but we know if our children have any need, he will take care of them.
