How likely are you to recommend Dr. Bresnahan?

(Select your rating)
We love Dr. Bresnahan. My son has been a patient for a few years. Dr. Bresnahan absolutely understands child development and gets the subtleties that not everyone picks up on. She has a way of communicating with my son directly so she can see how he is really doing. She has been instrumental in helping us get services at school, getting my son on the right medication (albeit a last resort) and guiding us as parents on how to manage things at home and in social situations.
