I chose my specialty because...

I find it very rewarding to practice in an environment where everyone strives to care for children in the best way possible.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

for the opportunity to care for children locally. Dayton Children's is a strong, independent, business savvy institution. I'm impressed with the constant focus on improving the outcomes and experience for the patients and their families.

Dayton Survey

Thank you for being so considerate and understanding about my kids being super fussy since they both were sick. As well as giving them both a cute stuffed animal that my youngest carries around everywhere with him.
