"I believe that we can make a great Emergency Department even better. Parents come to the ED because they have an urgent concern about their child. I love Children’s "continuous performance improvement" approach because it focuses on what families value — timely, high-quality care and an opportunity to get their concerns addressed by our outstanding medical providers. I come to work each day because I love spending time at the bedside with patients and their families. I want to make sure that all of our providers have the resources they need to do the same thing 24 hours a day and 365 days a year."

Finally, after weeks of questions, several doctors, many tests, a few false diagnoses, we found Dr. Migita who properly diagnosed the cause of our daughter's knee pain. He is kind, caring and takes his job seriously. I would highly recommend him.
