Children's hospital almost killed my son when he was 2 1/2 months old. They put him under general anesthesia 2-3 times within a week to check for things like cystic fibrosis (even though I was checked for this 3 times during my 3 pregnancies and he was checked for this at birth), intestitial lung disease (something that construction workers get from exposure to things like asbestos), had a sleep study, was put on a feeding tube and needed oxygen supplementation. He was also seen by a cardiologist and neurologist and had a few swallowing tests done. The doctors were disappointed when he was testing negative for these tests. The doctors summoned me to the hospital and were forcing me to do a surgery that would literally give up on his digestive system even though they have only done this type of surgery only once before. They were telling me that "he is such a rare case that there are no studies done on conditions like his," were sending priests to pray for him, and then eventually sent us home to "enjoy him for as long as we have him." He was such a rare case that while going to a pulmonary doctor, there were about 20 kids with appointments every hour and when he was seen, there were mostly students doing the work with the doctor popping in for a couple of minutes (each visit was over $700 like other people mentioned). As as if this wasn't enough, they were sending 6 foot tall employees dressed like clowns to the waiting room to play the violins while your child was going under general anesthesia. Thankfully there was another hospital where someone got us to see specialists. With minimal, short term treatment (a few months), my son got well. He is a healthy 6 1/2 year old and he's been fine ever since. Thank God this is the number one hospital in the country... in what? Highest billing? Lowest patient care? I'm happy for all the people that had a good experience; we had a horrible one. This hospital teaches medical students and practice medicine on your kids. (a month ago)

I’ve been seating here with 5 year old daughter. Nurse walked in to say doctor would be right in and that was an hr ago. No sight of anything or anyone. My daughters health is not important apparently to the doctors at this hospital. How can this place be called the best hospital in the country and yet not one doctor came in. (2 months ago)

A most wonderful place. Cannot say enough good things about the care here. Yes it's hectic, yes you might wait, but it's worth it to see staff at this level of experience. (3 weeks ago)

This place has everything. Full cable in the rooms for the kids. Laptops, Sony PlayStations all in the rooms. Incredible staff also. Friendly, helpful, kind. They honestly do everything they can to accommodate. Best Hospital in the entire world ! Seriously ! (2 months ago)
