In the Words of Our Families
We believe that your thoughts and feedback about your family's experience with Nemours are integral to helping us continue to improve our care. Here are some of the personal testimonials we’ve received from parents like you:
"Would not refer anyone with a childhood cancer to any other place — Nemours and the oncology doctors are the best!"
"I've never had a bad experience here and we've been coming here for 5 years! Everyone is amazing, and our oncologist and her staff helped us get through our daughter's cancer journey. They are very special people! I always recommend Nemours and our doctor to everyone I know. I pray they don't need to use her, but if they need a cancer doctor, she is absolutely outstanding, understanding, encouraging, and a blessing!"
"Excellent oncology doctor would not want to be anywhere else. Doctors, nurses, and staff are all wonderful!"
"We love Nemours in Jacksonville. They helped to save our lives!"
"My experience at [Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children] was great; all the staff made my son's hospitalization a unique experience. I can't thank them enough. Keep up the good work."
"The therapist is wonderful and very accommodating with scheduling. My son looks forward to seeing her weekly."
"They took care of my son like he was their own, couldn't ask for a better team."
"Our daughter is known by the staff members since she is a five-year patient. Now on a 6-month checkup schedule, they greet her with warmth and enthusiasm commenting on how she's grown and how beautiful she looks, like she has truly been missed. It is a wonderful welcome for her because she can be shy, and it replaces the memories of awful times there with happy ones."
"Our Nemours oncologist and his staff is one of the main reasons my son is alive today. I have complete faith in them and owe them a debt that cannot be repaid."
