Pediatric Patient Stories

You are here

We know how frightening it can be to get a neurosurgical diagnosis, especially if it involves your child. Here are some stories from our patients that attest to the kind of care they receive here. We hope this will put you at your ease and make you feel confident about choosing us to care for you or your child.

If you'd like to talk to a parent whose child received the same diagnosis your child has, we can arrange that. Many families have volunteered to provide support and comfort to others who find themselves in your position. Please call 212-746-2363 and ask about our Parent-to-Parent program, in which we'll connect you with someone who's been there.
