Review of Dr. Davidson

- in Levittown |

My son has been staying dr. Davidson for 4 years now since he was only a couple months old. She is an amazing doctor and cares very much about her patients. There has been times after my son's surgery she has even called to check up on him because she cares. I'm so thankful that she is able to keep my son's glaucoma under control.

Review of Dr. Handler

- in Jersey Shore |

The best doctor I have ever seen, hands down. If your child is ill with an ENT problem and you do not go do CHOP you are NUTS. My daughter was under a local specialists care for 5-weeks and misdiagnosed. Thenks to Dr. Handler she retained 50% of her hearing, minimal post-op issues. When she was 25 again a local guy who misdiagnosed the problem and wanted to do immediate surgery. Again, Dr. Handler pointed us in the right direction. No surgery needed. No recurrence. Just an ear infection.

Review of Dr. Dunham

- in Philadelphia, PA |

Paper removal that should have taken 3-5 minutes resulted in traumatic wounding/scaring of my 6-year old. Doctor is a classic narcissist that is too important to bother consulting with his patient/parent. Took it upon himself to remove a piece of paper without attempting irrigation or to even 'soften' the object. Ripped it out with forceps, blood oozing, child screaming..then says, "Well, he won't be putting anything else in his ear." Classic sociopath. He did not clean or examine the wound.

Review of Dr. Binenbaum

- in Philadelphia |

Gil is AWESOME, he corrected my vision through strabismus surgery and basically changed my life for the better. He is typically a bit overbooked but the appointment wait was well worth my time.

Review of Dr. Spray


Dr. Thomas Spray is the best best best Surgeon. He operated open heart surgery on my 3 year old son. Even though chances of rick is very minimal in the type of surgery it was performed but being parents we were very much scared. But Dr. Thomas Spray made us very comfortable during our first pre operative meet and some how I felt that my son is in best hands. Finally, my belief was not wrong. What ever he assured before the surgery, everything happened accordingly. He gave second life not just to

Dr. Spray has preformed three open heart surgeries on my 2.5 yr old daughter. She would not be here if it was not for him. He is our hero.
