      Dr. Class was extraordinary with our 12yo son during his ear surgery. He had a complication with his heart, but she anticipated this and was well prepared for it. The way she interacted with our son was amazing. She went out of her way to find a bed for him when the surgery was delayed and he didn't feel well. She talked directly to him and answered his many questions with patience. Afterward, in recovery when she checked on him, he brightened seeing her there and reached for her hand. We couldn't ask for better care.

      Dr Class was amazing with my 4 year old Autistic son Gavin. She spoke so sweetly and softly to him, which was comforting to both him and me. Thank you for taking such good care of our boy!

    • Jill Seattle, WA 11.23.15

      Thank you so much to Dr. Class for speaking softly and directly to my son during his anesthesia. She was so gentle, efficient and quick. I really appreciated how she made him feel comfortable both by describing what was going on as little planes and making sure I was there to keep him calm. Thank you!
