Review of Dr. Levene

-weston |

My daughter Alexia S. had fallen down really bad and we ended up at Joe DiMaggio children's hospital. She raptured her spleen. Dr. Levene was on shift and treated her in the hospital. I can not say enough good things about this doctor. She was genuinely concerned for my daughters well being, easily approachable and very kind. My daughter left the hospital and was able to resume her normal activities shortly thereafter.

Review of Dr. Whitehouse

- in Fort Lauderdale, FL |

Dr. Whitehouse has the kindest bedside manner, she makes you feel safe and reassured that you and your child will be in good hands. Strongly recommend her, she spends times with you and makes sure you have all your questions answered. I never felt rushed and the staff also was very friendly in both locations.

Review of Dr. Laituri

- in Hollywood FL |

Dr. Laituri was an excellent surgeon and made my son feel as if he was special, super supportive and attentive to all his needs. Explained details of the surgery and provided step by step the reasons for every process she would provide. Would highly recommend her services. Thank you Dr. Laituri and Staff for all you did for Nicholas and our family.

Review of Dr. Whitehouse

- |

We met Dr. Whitehouse when my son required surgery. She was very honest and compassionate and we knew she was the surgeon we wanted to use. She was able to complete the surgery and she is very professional and has a great deal of empathy for her patients. As a physician myself, I would highly recommend her to anyone who child may require surgery.

Review of Dr. Levene

- in Hollywood, FL |

My daughter Alisa R. loved her 1st visit to Dr Levene and so do I. How gentle, kind and professional she is. Her office staff is very sweet and professional as well. My daughter really felt like a VIP patient. Not only they have a huge variety of the videos in the waiting room but their treasure box is always full of presents, stickers. I feel that good practices need to be recognized and this one should be nominated for the coolest Pediatric Surgeon ever!!!

Review of Dr. Levene

- in Brooklyn, NY |

Dr. Mirensky is excellent. She performed a complex surgery on my son's stomach the day after he was born. Today, 10 months later, you can barely tell a surgery happened at all. He is happy, healthy and surpassing every milestone for a baby his age. And to add to her talents, she is warm and caring with an exceptional team to boot. I truly love her. I couldn't have asked for a better pediatric surgeon.

Review of Dr. Birken

-Lakeland, FL |

I have only praise and thanks for Dr Birken who accepted a challenge of removing a large cystic hygroma from my son 29 years ago. My son is now a practicing attorney. May God continue to guide your hands and life.
