      My family work with Dr. Kodish when our son was being treated for Leukemia and mental health issues he incurred prior to his adoption. We found Dr. Kodish, his team and the entire team at Children's to be exceptional in the way they cared for our son. It was a very difficult journey for us to walk, however this team made it easier to deal with because of their caring, understanding and willingness to understand the family dynamics and the fact we were new to this young man. We will forever be thankful for Dr. Kodish.
