      I highly recommend Dr. Osorio. She was able to put my son at ease, and has a warm sense of humor. She is part of an entire concussion recovery team at Children's that works so well together, communicates and makes my teenager feel confident.

    • Stephanie Zillah, WA 10.18.14

      I would highly recommend Dr. Osorio! She's amazing every time we have gone to see her and she makes us feel welcome and at ease. The most recent visit she remembered my son and was so excited to see him. That warms my heart. She remembered him out of all of her other patients. She cuddled him and he laughed with her and even fell asleep in her arms. I look forward to meeting with her again!

    • Hannah Edmonds, Washington 01.05.13

      I would highly recommend Dr. Osorio. She is very thoughtful and thorough. She really cares about her patients, and wants to ensure the best quality of care during healing. She really listened to concerns, and asked detailed questions to create a helpful dynamic plan for rehabilitation. She's awesome!
