We have a lot of trust in Dr Minor.

star star star star star

Dr. Minor has been treating our daughter for pretty close to four years now and he's the best of the best. We go out of our way to make sure we can see him. He's very knowledgeable down to earth. He connects with my wife and my daughter and we just adore him and are very happy with his support over the course of the years with her asthma. We understand that he is only part time there now, which we still go out of our way to make sure that we can see him when he is there. We're very happy with Dayton Children's, specifically Dr. Minor and his staff.

Dr. Minor was courteous and professional. Very nice but his bedside manner was very dry and not very upbeat and friendly for a pediatric pulmonologist. I just expected more of a upbeat, happy personality person but other than that he was amazing and he got the job done and we were in and out in a timely manner, and everybody made sure that we had a good experience so I appreciated that!
