Total care received
The day before we met with Dr. Phillips, we had just been informed that our baby (still in utero) had a serious medical condition and would need surgery right after birth. We were scared and had no idea what to expect. Dr. Phillips helped us understand exactly what the problem could be, walked through the surgery and care plan, and put many of our fears at ease during our appointment. He answered all of our questions, many we didn''t even know how to ask or express. He gave us a way to get in touch with him directly if we had any additional questions. We left his office feeling like our baby was going to get the best care possible.
