I literally felt like my daughter was the only patient there. Great care and support

rosa barreto, 1 month ago

I can't say enough about how fantastic the doctors and nurses are. So caring, attentive, kind, thorough, and overall amazing. They went above and beyond. Somehow they made us feel like we were a priority even in such a busy hospital with so many complex cases. We are so thankful our child was treated and recovered here.

Amazing stuff. My son goes to see Dr. Harini who has been great, she is good at explaining things to you and really getting your opinion and what you want to do for care and treatments. My son has been in the hospital 4 times here and overall has been a good experience.

OMG!!! My family has been patients for years here. For starters they ended up changing our family appointment to Saturday, which worked out perfectly because I wouldn't have to pull them out of school during the week. Unfortunately, my little one had her first cavity and Children's Dental Department has brought up to another level in the most fantastic way. Saturday visiting room was totally quite and each staff member gave us VIP service all the way up!!! Dr. Roslyn, was such a professional sweet heart. She explained the entire process and showed my daughter all the instruments they would be using. They even had an IPAD showing the Frozen movie playing above the patient dental chair. Ann & Lily the hygienist were excellent and Dr. Cooper was super as well. Our visit for 3 children took an hour and 15 mins. Lastly Dana the Administrative Coordinator is dynamic as always.

Dr. Marinoff is a very compassionate doctor. Some highlights that really stood out to us are attention to detail, very good listener, caring for patients overall outcome, and yet very professional. She always cared to check in with the patients and their families to make sure their concerns were heard and followed through with the rest of the care team. Very happy to have her as our doctor and very grateful that our paths crossed!

Dr.Resnick recently took my wisdom teeth out and he did a fanastic job! All the staff was very friendly. They all made sure I was comfotable and well informed throughout my entire visit. My recovery has been much easier then I had anticipated thanks to Dr.Resnick.

I love this hospital my son stood there for 3 days it was the best 3 days in a hospital in my whole life when I have my second child I will make sure to give birth there ! Love the place the nurse everything

Veronique Bulgheroni, 8 months ago

The doctors at this hospital are amazing, literally geniuses. However the standard of excellence with the administrative staff and booking an appointment/checking in is subpar-poor. I have had several problems getting in touch with staff and frequently the administrative staff (in multiple offices) had been rude and hard to work with work with. I would expect more from the number one hospital in the country. I can say this too because I not only am a patient but I also worked for Boston Children's Hospital.

Angela, 8 months ago

The best hospital I even seen, my son was treat like a royal prince, it was amazing everything. They are friendly, patience, know how to make you feel comfortable, the team of 7th floor West are great!! God bless everyone there!!

I just want to report that the kinetic sculpture (a machine with many balls rolling on rails and being elevated by motorized chains, colliding with wooden boards and xylophone blocks to make sounds, attracting children) was removed. The removal is OK, because the kids like to touch even kiss the glass container of the machine, this is dangerous in a hospital.

It's a fantastic place God bless all the workers there they have a good Heart

Daniel Suarez, 9 months ago

You truly cannot find a better hospital for children, they are rated number one for a reason! Kind and caring staff who will do anything they can to help. Very lucky to live so close to Boston Childrens.

Violet Spicer, 9 months ago

LOVE my surgeon there (Dr. Novais) and had excellent nurses the entire week post-op that I had to stay. Dr. Novais before during and after took time to educate me on options and potential outcomes and what was going on with my hip. He is very genuine with his care.

They save lives and give their hearts and souls to caring for their patients and their families - and they all have this beautiful gift of working with children all with a warm demeanor when you meet them! Prayers and blessings to you all for your passion and dedication to medicine and those you care for 🙏❤

Meg Kudla, 11 months ago

My wife is a patient here, and has been coming here since she was 8 or 9. She had an above the knee amputation, and the stay has been great. My only frustrations are with the cost of the food, Starbucks doesn't allow us to use our free drinks, and the parking program isn't completely explained. If you qualify, you can either come and go throughout the day, or get overnight parking,not both.
