    Very frustrated with the Dr, I came to have my son examined about physical limitations for his speech disorder and he immediately wanted to prescribe Flonase for him. Congestion isn't an issue for my son. Two weeks prior I had seen our pediatrician for my son's 5 yr checkup and they checked his ears and nothing was said and my son hadn't been sick since that appt. The Dr then wanted us to visit his speech therapist although we have one and expressed my concern with insurance and having problems getting addntl appts. I just feel like the Dr didn't understand why I was there.

      Dr. Iverson took care of my son a few years prior to this and I have also been on his patients' treatment team in the hospital; he has always been kind and patient and thorough. So, I was already relieved that my appointment was able to be with him. He talked through every ear infection, antibiotic she has had, timelines, family history, etc. He gave us options of treatments and when he was booked out nearly 2 months for an ear tube procedure, he found openings in his schedule to get our baby in, we were willing to wait but he worked with us. She has been sick for almost 5 months straight and his willingness to help her sooner without us needing to ask was such a relief. When he examined her, he was the only provider that she did not get upset with, he was gentle and patient.
