  • Lora Seattle, WA 12.04.13

    In 2006 our daughter had an MRI that indicated a mass in her brain. We met with Dr. Ojemann and, at first, I was intimidated. He is initially a rather serious guy and being a rather scared parent (and having never met a neurosurgeon), I thought he was a bit distant. But, after seeing Dr. Ojemann repeatedly over the years, my initial impressions couldn't have been more incorrect. Dr. Ojemann saved our daughter's life. He performed a very dangerous, complicated brain biopsy that resulted not only in her diagnosis, but also halted a life-threatening issue. Dr. Ojemann was kind, compassionate, thoughtful, realistic and transparent. We feel an overwhelming sense of appreciation for what Dr. Ojemann did for us. Our daughter is now a healthy 17 year old and applying for college. This would not be possible without the professional skills and commitment of Dr. Ojemann.

  • Erin Clinton, WA 08.11.13

    Dr. Jeffrey Ojemann and his Neurosurgery team; Dr. Luke Tomycz, Dr. Robert Oxford, Dr. Sean McEvoy and Dr. Wally Krengel in the Orthopedic dept. are the most amazing set of doctors I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Not only did they diagnose my 12 month old son with a difficult syndrome to find; Klippel-Feil Syndrome which is a rare cervical bone disorder, they were able to operate and save him from being a quadriplegic with a breathing tube. Now he will have the ability to be a healthy kid that can walk, talk, play sports, dance; whatever he decides he wants to do!! My husband and I can't thank these doctors enough and will consider them an integral part of our family! Not only were our doctors awesome the nurses in the ICU and on the surgical floor made our experience at Children's the best it could have possibly been. Thank you!

  • Lorraine Olympia, WA 07.11.13

    I will make this short and sweet: Dr. Jeffrey Ojemann has been absolutely wonderful to my son and my family throughout a very long ordeal. I have felt cared for, listened to and respected by Dr. Ojemann every step of the way. His skill is unsurpassed, his humanity and humility are beyond reproach, and his gentle caring demeanor is a blessing. We feel so fortunate to have Seattle Children's so close and to have found Dr. Ojemann. Thank you is all I can say and it will never be enough.

  • Suzie Kennewick, WA 03.25.13

    Dr. Ojemann is an amazing pediatric neurosurgeon - competent, qualified, and caring. He performed the brain surgery on our son that has changed his life forever. Our son went from being profoundly delayed as 11 month old with a future of continual neurological regression to an almost normally-developing 2 1/2 year old who has normal language skills, normal social skills, and mostly normal gross motor skills. His fine motor skills are still delayed, but his is making rapid advancements in that domain also. Even though Dr. Ojemann told us it might be too late to effect a change, and that the seizure activity had spread, Dr. Ojemann still felt that it was important and necessary for our baby to have surgery as soon as possible. He made it a priority for our son to have surgery as quickly as possible, and cautioned us not to wait, but to act immediately. While it was difficult to hand our baby over to the doctors for surgery, we knew that Dr. Ojemann would take good care of him, and we knew that Dr. Ojemann would be as careful with our baby as he would if it were his own child. There are always risks with brain surgery, but the neurosurgery team is so excellent at Seattle Children's, that your child will be safe and well cared-for, and in this way, surgical risks are minimized. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ojemann. He is a top-notch neurosurgeon who is humble enough to be willing to refer you to other neurosurgeons if need be. Every day when we look at our son, and how incredible his progress has been, we are reminded of Dr. Ojemann, are grateful to him, and thankful to God for placing him in our lives. By the pure grace of God, Drs. Ojemann, Novotny, and Senato were instrumental in giving our son the chance to walk, talk, climb, explore, and develop normally. Thank you, God for Seattle Children's, and for these amazing, incredible, and wonderful doctors! We praise God for the blessing of their intelligence, their skill, their competence, and knowledge. We also thank them for their understanding, their compassion, and their ability to relate to parents' concerns. Without Dr. Ojemann, our son would have lived a very different life. We are constantly awed and amazed by the miracle of our son's continued healing and progress, and we thank God for this incredible miracle. Dr. Ojemann told us that some parents opt to forgo this surgery because of its risks and the possibility that it might not be successful or only minimally successful, but I would encourage parents to take the leap of faith and have the surgery, and have confidence that Dr. Ojemann will give your child the best possible outcome. Thank you, Dr. Ojemann, for your care and concern for our son!

  • 04.10.12

    Dr. Ojemann operated on my daughter in 05 and then in 10 when she had a second tumor. He is now treating her for the third tumor... we are so blessed to have such a kind, compassionate and capable doctor in our own back yard so to speak. We have become aware of all the patients that fly here from all around the world to be treated by Dr. Ojemann and we certainly understand why. We have always been treated with respect, compassion and the same comfort that others have explained. I cannot stress enough how reassuring it is to have the undivided attention and straight forward answers Dr. Ojemann delivers. A sense of calm in an otherwise senseless storm of terror when you first become aware of your child's condition. He addresses my daughter and her concerns. even when she was 6 which pulls her into the mix and empowers her to take charge of her own outcome, that is priceless. If I had to say who my favorite person in the wold is.......... Jeffery Ojemann.... the man who has saved my daughters life and continues to care for her in the most positive way possible.

  • Heather Snoqualmie, WA 06.26.12

    While I would never want any other family to have an experience that would lead them to Dr. Ojemann, if you find yourself in need of a caring and knowledgeable neuro surgeon, he is the one you want. He took the time to answer all of our questions, big and small. Our daughter's surgery went well and she recovered quickly. He even took the time to stay late so that we would know the results of the post op MRI. We are so thankful to have our daughter in the care of such a great doctor. Thank you doesn't say enough.

  • Hai Bellevue, WA 12.29.11

    Our 7-year old son is under the care of Dr. Ojemann. He is very professional and friendly to patients and family. Of course technically we believe he is also one of the top doctors in the field. We are very comfotable and confident with Dr. Ojemann's care of our son. We are very grateful to him and Seattle Children's!

  • Brenda Bonney Lake, Washington 01.27.11

    Our son started having seizures when he was 6 months old. After a MRI showed a small mass in his right front lobe we were introduced to Dr Ojemann to explore surgical options. Dr. Ojemann took his time with us, somehow he makes you feel as if you are his only patient. He answered all of our questions and explained the procedure in a clear easy to understand manner. Dr Ojemann operated on our 3 yr old son in September 2010. We are happy to say the surgery was a great success and recovery for our son was a breeze! We feel so blessed to be touched by such an angel...Thank you, we are forever grateful.

  • Elyssa Seattle, WA 12.13.10

    Dr. Ojemann has operated on my son a total of 5 times. (2, 2-part brain surgeries, and one VNS implant). He has ALWAYS taken the time to sit down and explain every proceedure, and the risks and benefits of everything we've done. He has respected our decisions and answered all of our questions with openness and honesty. He is the kind of doctor that treats you like you are the only patient he has when he is with you. The surgeries themselves always went smoothly, and he kept us updated throughout everything. We felt like our son was in very very capable hands throughout his surgeries and recoveries.
