Dayton Survey

Honestly, at this time, we were very please with this ENT visit. Our new provider exceeded our expectations on all levels and raised our confidence for future care. It was truly a great comfort since our child needed a new doctor and we had no referrals. Thank you to all the Children's staff for their continued reliable dedication & trust.

Dayton Survey

The signage to get to the ENT was a little confusing, and then when I stopped at the front visitor desk and ask them where to go, they told me I had the check in which I did not have to do to see Dr. Patel. So I made an extra stop and kind of drug my kids around in a circle because it wasn't very clear where Dr. Patel was located and if it was necessary or not for me to check in. Thank you.

There was honestly nothing I would change. All 4 people we came in contact with during the appointment and especially the two doing the audiology test were great!
