Dr Childs took my case that no other doctor would take. I was having major problems and Dr Childs was the only doctor that believed in me and the problems I was having. I am a firm believer that God put Dr Childs in my path because he is the doctor that saved my life. Dr Childs is a very Christian and godly led doctor. A man that admits he is the surgeon but operates under God leading him and guiding his hands is a physician worth having. I thank god for Dr Childs everyday.
