get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I've always enjoyed working with my hands and building things, from erecter sets to scale models of aircrafts, ships and buildings. I felt that I could translate my perfectionist tendencies in building things into fixing people. Having participated in a number of sports growing up including baseball and attaining a black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do directed my interest towards sports medicine. I could not imagine doing anything else in medicine other than orthopaedic surgery.

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

I joined Dr. Albert and Dr. Lehner after a 21 year Air Force career. During my 12 years as an orthopaedic surgeon at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, I worked part-time at Dayton Children's prior to my Air Force Retirement in 2004. Dayton Children's was the perfect size, in a great community, with a superb staff and I knew it was the right fit for me.

Dayton Children's is special because...

of its superb dedicated staff, it's great physical facility and it's just the right size in a wonderful midwest community.

We arrived at our at 10:50 for an 11:00 appointment. We were finally taken back to the exam room at 11:25 and at 12:20 the doctor came. After a brief physical examination the doctor took us to a room to view the MRI images and explained that the image suggested surgery would be required to repair the damage. A second physician was consulted and they called a radiologist. The radiologist said the MRI did not show damage and no surgery was recommended. Dr. Mikutis committed to calling another radiologist and would call our home after their consultation. This has never happened. We are in limbo, uncertain of the next step. At this point we feel it was a waste of time and money to get the MRI done. Please advise.

All the staff was friendly. Dr. Mikutis took his time to go over x rays with my son and explain to him what was going on. I've never had a provider take their time to make sure my son understood what he needed to do moving forward. He is a passionate and kind doctor.

It's obvious to us that Dr. Mikutis in particular is a genuinely nice person in every way. He also takes time to make sure we understand everything, and his professional interest in helping children is apparent. All other staff members we encountered were helpful, friendly, and kind as well.

Our experience during this visit was fantastic! The check-in staff was friendly and the process was quick. We only waited a few minutes before being taken back. The doctor was so caring and took his time with my anxious son even having a lengthy conversation about his latest Lego creations. I was so impressed with how well we were treated!
