"We have been to France, Germany, Slovakia, Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Egypt in search of a diagnosis for our son. But it wasn't until we came to Cook Children's that we found answers. After meeting our son and examining him with the MRI, the doctors provided a diagnosis and treatment. I am very impressed with the hospital including our physicians and nurses. The amount of welcome we received from everyone we met and the arrangements made by the international team before and during our stay were all great." -Father of Khaled M.
