I chose my specialty because...

I am able to treat patients hands-on and it is gratifying to see results very quickly. Also, I was heavily involved in sports as I grew up and now enjoy taking care of the next generation of young athletes.


I like working with kids because...

they are so fun! Kids are motivated to resume play and I love that I can help them return to their normal activities.


I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

of the fantastic opportunity to practice my specialty in the area where I grew up.


Dayton Children's is special because...

of the collegial staff that is focused on providing the highest level of care in a comfortable environment.

From check in to Dr. Sarah Steward to Ann Smith, Physical Therapy, we could not have asked for a more comprehensive surgical/recovery plan, professional staff and beautiful facility.

While I am sure she is a qualified provider, her bedside manner a, especially for pediatrics, could use some developed. Taking a few moments to develop a relationship with my daughter before examining her would have gone a long way. Additionally, not speaking to my child with such condescension would go along way. Finally, before touching my daughter explaining what she is going to do before doing it would have gone a long way.

She was excellent. She listens, she was caring.

We love Dr. Stewart! She has been great with my son through this whole process. He has a long road ahead of him but between her answering any questions or concerns we have in a way my 14 yr old son understand and our Physical therapist Luke I know my son is getting the best care possible. If he had any other Doctor or any other Physical therapist he wouldn't be doing as great as he is doing.
