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.

This was our family's first broken bone, and I was feeling apprehensive. I was pleased that we were able to get in that day and was prepared to wait. I felt that the doctor did a good job interacting with myself and my son. However, when it was during the casting that I felt overwhelmed. I tried to explain that this was our first experience and I wanted to know what I needed to know. I did not feel like I was heard. I did get a paper at checkout that was helpful. It would have justed helped knowing that I would get that paperwork at the end.

Dr. Mikutis is a fantastic doctor. He listens to your concerns and he treats your child as if it were a member of his own family. He is very caring, intelligent, and really makes you feel confident as far as what he is doing for your child.

I don't have provider specific comments. It's just at the appointment took way longer than it should have. By the time we were done it was almost two hours after our appointment time.
