      Dr. Latham is thorough, kind and gentle with kids. We've had Dr. Latham as our anesthesiologist for two consecutive surgeries and he's warm, friendly and easy to talk to. It's nice to see a face you recognize, that your child recognizes from heart surgery to oral surgery. He's been fabulous to work with and have as a member of my son's medical team. Bryton and I thank you Dr Latham!
