Dr. Tim McQuinn is outstanding! I and my son Joshua were truely blessed the day God brought him into our life. He is truely amazing. His knowledge is unreal and i believe he has a very special gift to be able to do what he does with such compassion and patience, confidence and understanding, and he truely cares for his patients as well as their families. He brought my son through the hardest times of his life along side the rest of the cardiology team at SC's MUSC childrens hospital and NICU staff, but overall it was him, my son was born with TOF with VSD, as well as Pulmonary Atresia. These two things combined made Joshuas condition very complex and was a learning experience for alot of persons involved with Joshua, Dr. McQuinn very often went the extra mile to ensure joshua would live to see another day, there were many doctors who had a hard time deciding what to do for joshua because of the severity of his condition, we kept coming to what looked like dead ends until Dr. McQuinn stepped in and said ok, look this baby is going to make it." and after many months in the hospital, three surgeries later dr. McQuinn saved his life i strongly believe that. He is our hero. I have thanked God for him a million times over. Joshua is going on six years old now and is a very happy strong little boy, wish he was still here but glad he is somewhere helping other families as well. Phenomenal doctor! Thank you, Audrey and Joshua Logan

Dr MCquinn has treated our daughter Zoe for seven months now. He is kind, caring and very understanding. This has been a stressful time but he has been there for us. I cannot say enough good word about him because he is just the best doctor.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. McQuinn. He treated our son who had complications in recovery after his TOF open-heart repair surgery, and while it was stressful and emotional I also knew that he was always in very good hands with Dr. McQuinn. He communicated with us as parents, he cared about our son, he personally stopped in often to see him, and I always felt he was 100% focused on and engaged with our son when he was in our room. In addition to being excellent in his field, he is also a genuinely nice and witty person - and as the hospital stay gets longer these are valuable qualities.

Dr. McQuinn is an great doctor. He treated my son for six years at MUSC in Charleston, SC. My son was born with HLHS, and later received a heart transplant in November 2008. He is one awesome doctor!!!
