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:

"When our son was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), we were saddened and overwhelmed. Nemours Children's Hospital was a few months from opening, and we were seeking medical care out of state. However, once the hospital opened and our son became a patient of Dr. Richard Finkel, our lives changed forever. From our initial visit, Dr. Finkel has guided us with his warm and welcoming persona. His experience, intelligence and compassionate disposition have been invaluable to our family. We feel so fortunate to receive care from Dr. Finkel through the MDA Clinic at Nemours! Words truly cannot express our sincere gratitude."
