My son received the best care! He loves her and so do we.
in Norco, CA |
My 7 year old son fractured his right leg, Dr. McMichael and the wonderful staff at CHOC hospital went above and beyond caring for him. Dr. McMichael explained everything that was going to happen during and after surgery in great detail. I would highly recommend her!
