"Dr. Letzelter was the first doctor to spend a large amount of time listening to our concerns and not brushing them off. I'm so thankful we finally found someone who cared and listened. Advocating for a child who doesn't have any outwardly sick symptoms is a hard job as a parent. Very thankful to have found a provider with a listening ear."
"We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Letzelter, and we're just thankful for his care and attention. We had a great experience at Pediatric Specialists of Virginia."
"Every member of the staff was most helpful and kind! We loved Dr. Letzelter who was very thorough and I didn’t feel I was just another face. He took his time, which was refreshing in today's medicine. He practiced the way it should be practiced!"
