Dr. Wijetelki is awesome we went in for stomach issues and came out aware of a bullying problem at school. He has a way of connecting with the kids that I am thankful for.

As always, Dr. Wijetelleke was very thorough and addressed all concerns fully and completely. we have never felt rushed while in his care and trust his care of our son. We recommend this practice every chance we get.

the dr was very rushed, didn't communicate with the child at all, treated him as an object just tossing him around when performing exam. when I asked questions about the plan of care and prescribed procedures I was rudely dismissed so left the office not understanding what I am supposed to do to treat my sons condition. then later when my son's father called the office to find out how the appt had gone he was told by the dr himself that I was difficult to deal with and didnt want to comply with the recommendations. needless to say we r not going back to your practice. I believe it was the worst Drs office experience I have ever had in my life
