*Melissa was so nice & listened to all our concerns.Jan 19,2016
My child went from the 8th percentile to the 2nd and at every visit I ask the Dr. what I can do to help him eat more and gain weight and the only advice I've been given (by a different Dr. at UTMB) is add butter to his food, which clearly isn't helping. The Dr. does not seemed concerned about his weight, although everyone else including myself is alarmed by it. I asked to see an occupational therapist to see if they can help with this problem and the soonest they can see him is in 2 months. I realize that part is out of the Dr.'s hands but I feel like the Drs. he saw at his 6 and 9 month appointments should have recommended an intervention for this problem a long time ago, or at least give better advice on how I can help him gain weight.Dec 11,2015
