A big thanks to CHEO

One and a half years ago my son had surgery at CHEO to correct his lazy eye.  Since then he has been followed regularly by Dr. M. O'Connor, Opthalmologist for regular check ups to make sure things were going well.  Yesterday was our final appointment, Dr. O felt my son's eyes were stable, had healed extremely well and no longer needed follow up from Clinic 8. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank Dr. O'Connor and all the staff at CHEO who were so wonderful through appointment bookings, surgery day, through to his discharge.  Dr. O is fantastic with the kids, is playful and patient during his appointments and seems to genuinely get a kick out of seeing his patients.  He listens to what they say, lets them answer his questions, and gives good positive reinforcement throughout the appointment.  

I feel lucky to live in a city with such a fantastic and supportive hospital for children.  They are truly family centered and treat the kids with such respect which makes them feel important and part of their own care.
