Dayton Survey

Please see previous comments.Also, when checking in to our appointment in plastic surgery, we were a little late because we just came from an MRI and things ran a little long (so someone in the hospital called on our behalf, which was also incredibly helpful). When we arrived, I apologized to the check-in staff member for our tardiness and she responded with "No need for apologies. You are taking care of your child and you never need to apologize for that." Her sincere compassion and kindness nearly brought me to tears. For someone who strives to be timely, I was stunned by her grace and kindness. This small gesture made a genuine difference to a family spending the day in the hospital for four different appointments. Thank you!

Dayton Survey

I will absolutely refer Dr. Mancho to family, friends, co-workers, etc. His ability to clearly explain the process, procedure, etc. from start to finish. How the interaction with the insurance company, my role, his role, his staff. When I left I knew exactly whom I needed to speak with, what I needed to do and my roles and responsibilities, when he's available thru the remainder of the year. I can go on. Staff, his insurance POC was awesome. She gave me all of the facts. She let me know that she was there for me and she would do whatever I wanted to do. That made me feel more comfortable and that I have a say as well. Thank you all.
