Patient Satisfaction

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:

"Even though it was a scary experience for our toddler to have surgery, the hospital staff was so caring and friendly, it was comforting. I felt like everyone took time with us, explained things clearly in terms I could understand, and answered all of our questions. It never felt 'overwhelming.' The staff minimized my stress, so my only concern was just being there for my son. Thank you."


"The doctor explained everything very well, didn’t make us feel bad for bringing our daughter for something that turned out to be nothing. Even set up a follow-up just to make sure. Very good with our 10-month-old."


"Nurse had a lovely tone of voice. My daughter is 20 months old and putting eye drops in is not pleasant for anyone! She was very efficient and gentle."


"I have taken my son to [Nemours/ Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children] for 3 separate health concerns in the past 6 years. I sincerely believe the pulmonologist saved his life; the urologist put our minds at ease and the eye doctor has him on the right track. I wouldn't take him anywhere else."


"I am very satisfied with the doctor and care provided to my child, I will travel the distance — it is worth it."


"We have seen every doctor [at Nemours]. Every visit, every time has been perfect. We have never had any issues and my son has been a patient there since 1997. Thank you for all you do!"


"First visit to Nemours was a pleasant experience — very nervous about appointment, but our nurse did an excellent job of explaining the procedure and calmed my nerves."


"[Nemours and Wolfson Children's Hospital] are the only places I want to take my son. The doctors, nurses, MA, PA, and everybody there is the best. I trust them with my son’s life."


"I was very pleased with my experience at this office. The staff was very kind, and the doctor took her time with my child. I would recommend this [Pediatric Eye Care] practice to anyone."


"We had a great experience! My daughter is 3 years old, and she normally cries and is uncooperative at doctor visits, but the staff was very nice, and she felt comfortable there, and she did perfect for her appointment with no tears!"
