      My daughter is 3 years old and in Oct. we saw Dr.Cabrera for the first time. She is the best! She is so patient and that's important when you have a 3yr old who is being just a little difficult ;) . She went over everything with us and ordered more testing just to be on the safe side for my little one. We had a MRI on a Friday and was told she wouldn't be back into the office until Monday to get the results. But she took the time on a Sunday to call and give me the good news on the MRI results. I highly recommend her! This will be my daughters dr for as long as she is being seen at Seattle Childrens!
