Kristina and Matthew Rediger’s daughter, Natalie, was born with special needs. She sees a lot of doctors, but there is one doctor that really stands out – Dr. Glendon Burress, a pediatric gastroenterologist at Mercyhealth.
“Having so many doctors’ appointments obviously brings about a lot of anxiety for her. She doesn’t enjoy going to the doctor at all but Dr. Burress is the one that she really does enjoy going to see so I think that says a lot about his care and just the kind of person that he is,” Kristina said.
The Rediger’s other two children, Anna and Zachary, have celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that’s triggered when you eat gluten. They are also patients of Dr. Burress and say he’s a funny doctor who always makes them feel valued.
