Everyone at Seattle Childrens Hospital has been wonderful. This is truly a top notch organization, but there are a couple of people that made our circumstances easier and Dr Gentry is one of them. Her bedside manner is amazing. She made me very comfortable and when our surgery was delayed she was very understanding about the fact that my daughter had not eaten or drank anything for several hours. Once we were in the surgical room Dr Gentry played some cute music right up my daughters alley which made her happy and took her mind off the unusual environment. It helped put me at ease also. Its the little things like this that made me feel like my daughter was truly in the best of hands and really cared for. Thank you Dr Gentry!
