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:

"Very organized, did not feel rushed. All of our concerns were addressed and pertinent to developing our child's plan of care. In fact, 'The Healthy Kitchen,' the general nutritional sheet of information was valuable to not only us, but my co-workers who were interested for their own children. Our thanks to everyone!"


"This doctor has been great. He is very thorough and straight forward. He is willing to do whatever it is to help his patients. He also has a pleasant disposition. His weight management clinic is top-notch."


"I have a friend who has been trying to get her daughter into this program. When I mentioned this to the doctor and receptionist [at Nemours], they phoned my friend right then to arrange an appointment with them. I think very highly of both the doctor and receptionist for taking this action."


"Our doctor is a very good weight management doctor. He is very knowledgeable and more than willing to help you out in any situations. He is also very personable and straight-forward."
