Patient Comments (5)
Los Angeles, CA |
My experience with Dr Childs was very god but I cannot recommend her. Her office is poorly run and dysfunctional and the staff rude and unhelpful. -They sent me to the wrong location for a blood test and failed to submit the order. -Day of my consult they scheduled Dr. Childs to have 15 minute appointments so that by the time I arrived (30 min early) she was so backed up I had to wait an HOUR - Post-surgery they mixed up my meds and gave me incorrect instructions. Dr. Childs deserves better.

Excellent care, answered all questions thoroughly, took her time, explained things well, was kind, was humorous and light-hearted, cured my ailment, demonstrated total expertise, and overall a very positive experience.
in Playa Del Rey, CA |
Underwent abdominal surgery with her. While she was willing to perform it the day I was in the ER, she admitted she had a long day in the OR and as it was not an emergency she would do it on Saturday. That's what was done. It was done laparoscopically and I cannot find the scar. Her office called me the evening of the surgery to check on my condition. I had minimal post op discomfort- slight irritation in incision site.

She removed my perforated appendix at St. John's Hospital in 2014. She's got a great bedside manner & I really liked her.
in Pacific Palisades, CA |
This is one of the most caring and skilled doctors I've ever experienced. No doubts, no qualms, 100% fantastic experience.
