Deacon's Doctors:
We live in Atlanta, GA and I thank God every day for the amazing doctors we had access to. I can't say enough good things about them. Considering how horiffic the experience could have been, both doctors (as well as their entire staff) were wonderful at calming our fears and taking care of our little man. Here is their contact info if you or a family member need to seek out their services for a craniosynostosis repair ike Deacon had...
