      Dr. Conwell is an amazing Pediatric Cardiologist! My son was seen by him since he was a week old. Dr. Conwell is very good with kids and does a very good job of explaining things. He diagnosed my son with VSD and carefully watched him through the years, when he was 6 years old Dr. Conwell saw that there was a problem on one of his echo tests and recommended surgery to correct it. We were worried, but Dr. Conwell helped us feel better. He was with us every step and explained everything really well. His surgery went great and he is doing much better! Thank you Seattle Children's and Dr. Conwell!
