I found Dr. Messner to be one of the best in the field, with a great bedside manner. Her analysis of the problem was excellent, and the surgery performed perfectly. She even called the evening of the surgery at 9 pm to make sure that my daughter was recovering as expected. I recommend her more than wholeheartedly. I feel very lucky that my daughter was treated by such an outstanding doctor.

The negative reviews here are surprising. Readers should take into consideration that this doctor has served thousands of patients and has saved hundreds of children's lives over the course of her career, yet only 8 reviews are listed here. This doctor is careful, professional, compassionate and dedicated to improving the functional life of every child she serves. My daughter has undergone no less than 25 procedures with this surgeon and we could not have more confidence in any doctor.

Missed diagnosis my 4 months old baby and insisted to keep my baby there for months without any treatments. She couldnt figure out my baby has laryngeal cleft type 3 . How in the world Stanford a high ranking hospital can hire these unprofessonal and also less experienced doctor like this. To save more baby lives get her out if there. Luckly my baby is now at Boston Children hospital after a long fight from a crazi mama. Please stanford hospital you need to do something. She knows who I am
