Review of Dr. Rice-Townsend


He was so knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He gave us a lot of information on our sons consultation & made us feel at ease. He’s a wonderful doctor. So glad we made the 6 hour trip!

Review of Dr. Mooney

- in Lexington, Ohio |

Dr. Mooney is absolutely amazing! His professionalism, compassion, and genuine concern for our daughter and our family was remarkable. He was successful in relieving our daughter's pain after multiple physicians locally were unable to treat her rare condition. We traveled over 11 hours to meet him on our quest for our daughter to be pain free.

Review of Dr. Puder

-Bronx, NY |

My son saw Dr. Puder for a surgery. He was by far the best Dr I have ever met. His bedside manner is the best I have ever encountered. In such a scary time of my son needing surgery, he made me feel like he would carry the weight of everything and let me relax. I walked out of the OR and I truly felt that he would treat my son no different than he would treat his own!

Review of Dr. Lillehei

-Syracuse, NY |

Dr. Lillehei is phenomenal. His bedside manner, patient care, and explanation/reasoning of procedures are the best that we have encountered in the medical profession. He truly defines what professional means and goes above and beyond to make sure that the patient needs and family needs and concerns are thoroughly addressed. He has performed multiple surgeries on our son. We highly recommend him and wish that all surgeons and doctors were as caring, comprehensive, and knowledgeable as he is.

Review of Dr. Jaksic

- in Hudson, NH |

We transferred our son to Children's from another Boston hospital. He ended up having his third bowel resection surgery under the care of Dr. Jaksic and his team. Dr. Jaksic always answered every question and concern we had, walked us through what would be his third surgery, called from surgery with updates, and he is the surgeon who ultimately fixed our son. We are so very grateful to Dr. Jaksic and the CAIR team at Boston Children's Hospital.
