"My daughter began seeing Dr. Hairston in the fall of 2011, when she was 16 years old.
I am very grateful to Dr. Hairston for working with her to find the correct medication to allow her to live a life that is fulfilling for her and a joy to her parents. She has returned to college and, with her better ability to focus, made the Dean’s List her first semester!
I feel this is due to the appropriate use of medication and the excellent care she receives from Dr. Hairston. We are grateful for the care and concern Dr. Hairston gives to her patients."
