I love the fact that everyone helped out with one another to make sure that things went well and they all were very caring.

We arrived at Children's via an ambulance transfer from another local hospital after we took our son there with a broken arm. We waited around forever at the other hospital for a doctor to finally speak with us, and he said something along the lines of, "I've never seen a break like this in my 38 years of practicing!" Just what a parent wants to hear, right?! After we arrived at the ER at Children's, we were eventually placed in the confident, nurturing care of Dr. Beimesch who told us, "I've had three breaks like this today!" We immediately felt reassured that we were finally in good hands, and our son remained in the good hands of Dr. Beimesch from surgery, through periodic check-ins throughout his PT, to finally being told to "not come back!" a bit more than 6 months to the day since he first injured himself. Speaking with her before and after surgery took us from scared and bewildered to calm and confident. She is a gift to both children AND their parents! All the nurses pre- and post-surgery were sympathetic, compassionate, and competent. The anesthesiologist was reassuring to all of us. He made our son go from scared to brave in a matter of minutes! Lucy, his physical therapist, got our son from barely being able to extend his arm once it was out of his cast to almost 100% extension in a fun and playful manner. We are so grateful for the care our son received at Dayton Children's and though we pray we never have to return (though the freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies in the café are a strong draw), we are comforted knowing it's there if we need it. Thank you so much.
