      My Daughter was a 14 week Preemie 17 years ago and we have had many specialists throughout the years. Dr. DiVall has an amazing mind for solving puzzles and an innate ability to translate complicated medical terms to words non medical people can understand. Dr DiVall is prompt in her responses and consistent on her follow up emails and phone calls always keeping us in the loop and making sure we understand the processes. I am very pleased that we found her and as a mother with 2 autistic children I appreciate her excellent service
