Question Rating Breakdown
Dr. Minor is a great asset to Dayton Children's and I am very happy that we chose to use their pulmonary team with him heading my son care. I really appreciate all the hard work that he has put into keeping. My very complex kid is healthy and stable as possible and keeping him at home.
Hi, Mark Minor Dr. Minor has been able to help our son basically like figure out we figured out what was going on with him. No other provider was able to do that. So we're very thankful that he has done that for us and are happy with Children's and everyone who's there. So, thank you. Bye.
We could not ask for better care than what we constantly receive from Dr. Minor and his nurse. They both deeply care for their patients and families. You can see it in their eyes, their gentleness and their attention to detail during exams and charting. They never make you feel that you are " just a number" and never rush the appointment or leave the room until all questions are answered. In the rare occasion that Dr. Minor is uncertain the best course to take or latest treatment options, he will carefully research and often respond the same day. Very pleased!!!
Dr. Minor is amazing. He is very personable and we certainly know he cares. I appreciate he makes my family feel like he is interested in my child's well being. My daughter, thinks he is awesome!
