"This group is AMAZING!!!
I used them for my 8 year old autistic sons dental procedure. My son is completely non-verbal and suffers from many ticks that make every day life and keeping things calm quite difficult.
My biggest fears were the anesthesia of course, but also that my son would become confused and regress (as he often does after rough experiences) or become aggressive because he didnt understand what was going on and sometimes the fear will make him angry for days and it is so sad to watch him go through. But with Dr. Raquel and Ashley it was one of the first experiences in a doctors office that my son and I walked away happy and in better spirits than I could have ever hoped for.
Both Dr. Raquel and Ashley were on top of everything. I called with probably 10 questions every time we spoke and every time they gave me real answers that made sense and calmed my nerves. They never once ignored me or acted like I was being over dramatic. They assured me they would take care of him like their own, and that's EXACTLY what they did.
We went over everything we could think of that would cause problems and Dr. Raquel made it her mission to understand who my son is before we ever went in. The day of the procedure we talked about every step she would take. When the procedure was over Dr. Raquel was sitting with my son talking to him like I would, taking it slowly and allowing him to slowly wake up and get his bearings and be comfortable. She let us take our time to leave until we were ready and when we left asked that we check in with her so she knew we were recovering well. The whole day we called back and forth checking in.
My son came out of that procedure better than he does when he gets his physicals because of Dr. Raquel's compassion and caring.
If you're looking for an anesthesiologist THIS IS THE ONE!!!!!! I dont think I have ever been happier."
