"I do my best to give every child the same care I would for a member of my own family. "It is so critical that I develop a relationship with parents based on mutual respect and trust,so we can work together to make the best possible decisions when it comes to their son's or daughter's mental and physical health. After all, no one knows a child better than his parents do."
