Dr. Aaron Wightman recently spent time with our teenage daughter for providing a second opinion and guidance on a serious issue. We traveled several hours to get back to Seattle, because we know Seattle Children's is the best around and we could not get knowledgeable pediatric care where we live.
Both my daughter and I recommend Dr. Wightman without reservation for any issue - for any child in need of nephrology care. He is extremely knowledgeable on matters of kidney health and came to the appointment thoroughly versed on our daughter's medical history as though he had committed every page to memory.
Dr. Wightman is relateable to children as well as parents, and provided us with a positive, do-able plan of action whereby we left Seattle Children's Hospital Nephrology Clinic feeling a huge weight had been lifted.
In today's world of healthcare, and in the world of technology, information overload and uncertainty, it is extremely comforting to find a practitioner who not only took the time to become very familiar with our child's background, current health, and answered all our questions, but instantly developed a lifelong relationship with us. He took his time (another rarity), and we never, ever once felt rushed, or felt like no one really cared.
Our nurse, Cathy Watt was awesome too!
Thank you Dr. Wightman. Seattle Children's is lucky to have you on their team!
