From almost birth, my child has been a patient of Dr Dan at the Townsville Hospital. From the first moment we met Dr Dan he has been outstanding. Not knowing what was wrong with my newborn baby was the scariest moment of my life, but I felt very at ease knowing that I my child was in the hands of very skilled Surgeons. All of the operations have been communicated to me well, I've understood what happens in the procedure and I have been comforted by the staff. The downfall here is the communication between practitioners. When Dr Dan was away I didn't feel at ease like I would normally. I was made to feel like a hypochondriac.. as a mother I knew that my child was not well. We got sent home from the Emergency Department 4 times in the week. On the 5th visit I refused to leave and requested that my child at least be observed overnight. After observation we were then told my baby needed to go to theatre. This was frustrating to me as I had been saying that from the first visit.
