We were very disappointed by our experience at Children's Hospital. We were originally referred to Children's Hospital by our pediatrician for a hernia on our one month old son. Due to my son's age, Children's Hospital wanted to wait on the repair surgery. Children's did not want to repair the hernia until my son was six months old. At the time of the original appointment, the hernia did not seem to be bothering my son too much. However, over the course of the next two months, my son's hernia kept getting bigger and started to cause him a lot of pain. It had gotten to the point that my son was no longer able to sleep or lie down without screaming. I repeated called Children's Hospital explaining the situation. However, they still refused to do anything until my son was older. Due to the poor condition of our son, we were then referred by our pediatrician to another urologist for a second opinion. After seeing our son, the other urologist discovered that the hernia was becoming incarcerated and recommended a repair as soon as possible. We were able to get the hernia repaired within two days after getting our second opinion. Had we not gotten a second opinion, we most likely would have ended up having emergency surgery on our three month old which would have been a much more high risk procedure. We were very disappointed by how we were treated by Children’s Hospital. We wish that they would be willing to treat patients on a case by case basis rather than issue blanket diagnosis and wish that they had taken the time to actually listen to us regarding what was going on. Had they done that, they would have realized that my son’s condition was more serious and would not have made my son suffer in pain for two months.
