      My daughter had intussusception about 2 to 3 years ago. I will never forget Dr. Danielson and how he saved my daughter by simply caring. He had given me a business card with his pager number in case of after hour urgency, I didn't know doctors still do that! I never thought I would have to use it but I was so thankful to have it that night. Intussusception is rare, she was mostly crying off and on and holding her tummy, my husband thought it was a tantrum to avoid bed time but mother intuition told me something was wrong. I paged Dr. Danielson and he returned my call immediately (at 9pm). He told me he thought it was intussusception and to take her to the ER right away. I took her to Children's hospital ER and thankfully she was able to receive the help she needed in time.

      Dr. Danielson in our lives, and the lives of our children is the best thing ever. Our children are cared for by a person who listens to the parents AND the children. He offers up information we may not think to ask. He will research a question and get back to you if necessary. He understands the dynamics of the split family, and of a blended family and is sensitive to that when talking to the children. He is intelligent, and all the staff at Odessa are always so freindly, kind, welcoming to us. It is a lovely oasis of hospitality, and for our family, going to see the Dr. is a treat. We love Dr. Danielson and ALL the lovely people we see at Odessa, and we know we are getting some of the best medical attention in all of the U.S.

      I couldn't imagine having anyone else take care of my 4 children's medical needs. Dr. Danielson is both professional and personable. We are so lucky to have a doctor that cares for the whole child.

      We love Dr. Danielson--he is an excellent practicioner and the kids love him because he is really fun and always joking around. He has been wonderful at helping manage my daughters special health needs and I feel really comfortable with his advice and the decisions he makes for her care. We love all of the practicioners at Odessa Brown Clinic. They really are a phenomenal bunch! We love when we can see Dr. Danielson, but we are never dissapointed when we see someone else there as well.
