      Dr. Wearny has been monitoring my daughter's congenital hypothyroid for 2.5 years. When my daughter's condition was first referred to Children's when she was a few days old, Dr. Wearny called us on Easter Sunday evening and spent an hour talking to me and my husband about the findings. We greatly appreciated his unscheduled time and patience answering our questions. We have found him to be very patient, offer good explanations and really listen to our concerns. He engages with the kids in their world - like when my 3 year old son's toy needed a check-up during his sister's visit - or giving my 1.5 year old daughter extra band-aides - on a day when she had about 3 on just for fun. I am also impressed with his prompt follow through and phone calls that I actually receive from him - sometimes just to let me know the most recent tests were good! I highly recommend Dr. Wearny!
