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:

"Best neurosurgery team on the East Coast"

"[Our neurosurgeon] is the reason why our daughter is able to walk and live normally. He is our hero!"

"[Our neurosurgeon] has been very helpful with answering our questions online, by phone and in person. He offered to see my son earlier than scheduled and has made his experience much easier."

"Always a pleasant experience for what it is. We love [our neurosurgeon] … he saved my son's life. I am forever grateful!"

'Staff in all areas we see are professional and friendly. Take into accounts my boys’ special needs when uncooperative with them at times."

"Excellent care! Comprehensive neuro exam performed and extensive explanation of diagnosis. I would highly recommend this physician."

"The neurosurgeon made us feel very confident in him and the hard situation we went through with our son. We felt very comfortable with him and his ability to treat our son for the best outcome."

"A medical student examined our child with our neurosurgeon. The doctor did an excellent job of balancing teaching his student without making our child feel like a science experiment."

"Even though we go to [Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children] for a serious issue, the staff makes it as pleasant as possible, they keep us informed, they are nice, and they don't keep us waiting, which is nice when you have kids."

"The duPont Hospital for Children is by far the most wonderful place if you have to go there. Everyone who works there, no matter what department — residents or attendings — are very helpful and knowledgeable."

"All the nurses have been so compassionate and understanding. They listen and seem to genuinely care. In general, I would like to thank everyone for how comfortable we have been made to feel, from start to finish."
