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 first experience with a broken bone so we had no idea what to expect. I was put at ease and everything was explained at every step. Nursing staff was friendly and I didn’t feel like we were being rushed through. The doctor took the time to show us exactly where the fracture was and how it happened.

Dr. Mikutis and his staff were wonderful. We got an appt right away, we didn't have to wait long to be seen and he spent so much time with my son working with him to get a diagnosis. He answered all our questions and genuinely cared.

I think our experience could have been improved if we had been, if the provider had listened to us more. We know our child best and we know what he's been dealing with and we didn't feel like our concerns were listened to or followed through until another second. Visit weeks later.
