Have seen this specialist for over 5 years. During that time I was sent to countless physical therapists, with no improvement to my pain. My pain is the result of being date raped and a surgery to the area gone wrong. Still in horrendous pain, feeling hopeless and suicidal, Dr. Child's, AFTER 4 years, FINALLY prescribes medications that make my pain go away.!!? Now disabled, he chooses not to prescribe my medication. Medicaid drs. don't understand pelvic pain !

Dr. Childs is wonderful! He takes time to listen and is very caring. And most important, he is a brilliant doctor!

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.
