From a Parents View Point
Heidi from Pennsylvania, USA
The doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital gave my daughter quality of life, especially the Aerodigestive department.
When our local hospitals had no more answers for us and we were at our lowest, a very special nurse coordinator out of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital called me on the phone while my daughter was still inpatient and said we want to help you.
Going to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital was the best decision we have made and we now make the 7 hours, one-way trip every year to see specialists and they direct the care here at our home hospitals. I will forever hold the doctors, nurses, etc, at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital close to my heart.
They are heroes.
The doctors, surgeons, and nurses are amazing. My son Oliver had VACTERL association and was an extremely complicated case.
I was lucky enough to live so close to this amazing hospital. His two main doctors were Vic Garcia and Aaron Garrison. I love those two with everything that I have.
My son unexpectedly died at 16 months old due to rare deformities that could not have been predicted. My little boy was too complicated but these wonderful people there gave my son the best 16 months of his life.
They treated us like family and they gave my son so much love. They always did things to give him a better quality of life and made sure those 16 months weren’t spent all in the hospital. I can not praise these people enough.
