get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I love children and to treat their brain disorders

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

I was able to develop a Neurology Department from the ground floor up. I was impressed with the staff, other faculty. In all my years here at Dayton Children’s, I have never been asked to not admit a child or send them home because they had no insurance.

Dayton Children's is special because...

the people who work here make this place great, not the fancy and expensive equipment

Dr. Lacey took the time to listen to me and my child. We didn’t feel rushed through the appointment. He explained the options of treatment so that we understood. He was very caring and helpful.

Dr. Lacey was very informative about the process after a concussion. The information that he gave me about the headaches will come in very handy.
