I like working with kids because...

they are innocent and vulnerable and need help.

it takes very good care of it's healthcare workers and provides a good environment to deliver care.

Dayton Children's is special because...

Provider Rating

When I asked a question for clarification, he seemed annoyed that I repeated a question because I didn't understand it and was like condescending when he answered like with a like smart alec smile and just really kind of ruined the patient relationship is like with the provider right in there because I'm the parent. So whenever you have a doctor that kind of acts like that whenever you're misunderstanding what he's saying that was not good in my eyes. So yeah.

Provider is rude, got irritated when asked to repeat himself because he was wearing a mask. Doesn't listen, doesn't understand or doesn't care what you are telling him. Our family has tried to give him the benefit of the doubt for a year but will no longer be doing that. We will either be seeing a new provider or changing hospitals.

Very concerned provider. He listens to all of our concerns and responds quickly. He has lots of patience.
