in Liverpool, NY |
After seeing 3 different gastroenterologist in two different cities we finally got answers for the pain my Granddaughter was in. The experience at Boston Children's Hospital with Dr Nurko and his entire team was awesome. We were treated with compassion and respect and my 6 year old Granddaughter with care and love. I would recommend a trip to Boston if you are not getting answers elsewhere.
