I had to go to Florida and stay with my Mother for several months when she was diagnosed with breast cancer; Dr. Childs was so gentle and caring, he gave us plenty of time and options and when we finally decided to have surgery he was excellent. His office was located in the hospital which was convenient. My mother loved his nurse so much (because he made her laugh and put her at ease) that she actually looked forward to her visits to the office. I hope we never need him again but if we do, I know we are getting the best care.
