"Caring for children with chronic liver disease is a privilege because we have the ability to give very sick children a new and healthy life. Although the journey to a liver transplant can be long and uncertain, I assure families we will make the journey together so they never feel alone in the process. I enjoy gaining a family's trust and appreciate their faith in my ability to help their child heal. I am constantly humbled by the gratitude of families who never fail to thank us no matter the outcome. We experience so much together that it's not easy to let go when our patients graduate to adult care. Each time they leave I feel like there's an empty nest."
My son has been working with Dr. Blondet as he has been suffering from an undiagnosed GI issue. She is the most detailed doctor we have worked with. She takes time to fully listen to long histories, work with other providers, and will not give up. Her positive attitude and perspective during stressful situations has been greatly appreciated by my husband and I. During one such period, we got a call each Friday reiterating the plan for the weekend and our list of "to-do's" in case he deviated. We cannot thank her enough.
We love Dr.Blondet! She has been with us on our journey since day one of finding out the diagnosis of my sons liver disease and she has been such an amazing support through it all. She gives us hope for our future. Thank you!!!!!
