Dayton Survey

Dr Potts is wonderful. Very friendly and knowledgeable. She takes her time with your child. When she asks if you need anything she actually means it and follows through. She is amazing as is the staff that works with her.

Dayton Survey

Everyone at Dayton Children’s is so friendly, helpful, and resourceful. We have minimal wait time for appointments. Doctors, nurses, and etc are very easy to talk with and ask questions. My son does not mind his appointments there because everyone is so nice to him.
