HUGE shoutout to the team in the Dallas surgery center for taking care of our 3yo yesterday. Every single interaction we had with anyone who works at Children's was so friendly, comforting, and helpful. From a random person we passed in the hall when we were clearly looking lost, to the pre-op team and anesthesia. Dr. Stanasel was a dream as always - so great, one of our faves. And special shoutout to Tess the recovery nurse we had - she loved on our boy while he was still sleeping and spent so much time with us, caring for our son and keeping him entertained, and being our voice to anesthesia so we were able to safely come home the day of (no overnight stay!). THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Children's! Ya'll rock.
I cannot believe this just happened. My son with autism got his Covid vaccine with no pre-medication, no one holding him down and no screaming or crying. It’s a first EVER, and mine were the only tears (of joy)! We used a social story and were met with a calm lady named Janna who set the stage for success by her calm, quiet and simple reassurance. You all are simply the very best!!!

Been waiting for over 2 hours just to be seen. Daughter has a double break in her forearm and this place can’t even be bothered to see her. Good way to treat a 7 year old.
We are so disappointed... our daughter was not diagnosed correctly. The PT that was prescribed actually further aggravated her injury (because it was FAR too much work for the tear to her knee) causing her to lose 6 weeks of recovery time. Now she is starting over, is 6 weeks behind where she should be AND we owe over a thousand dollars to Children's PT and Ortho...? We are not impressed with your fancy facility when you don't even look deep enough to see the real issue with our athlete...
