Children's healthcare of Atlanta, is a wonderful place to take your children for the oh so many bumps, bruises, and breaks that they experience during their formative and years of discovery!
The only place I go in emergencies for my kids!! The nurses and doctors are equipped for children and nervous parents! From broken bones to stitches to spiking fevers - they will put you and your child at ease.
I've taken all three of my kids here for emergency situations. The doctors were attentive and caring. The staff was efficient and experienced in treating children. The only negative is that it is a teaching hospital so you may get a medical student that is not as experienced.
good day to one and all I am s.mahomed from south Africa, and I am an ardent fan of children health care of Atlanta i follow and share the dedication of every good deed on my Facebook page. I can honesty rate this health to 100 plus. But sadly in my country we pay so much through medical aids, but we do not get our monies worth. Last week my kid was hospitalised in a private hospital that looked life a cramped prison small passage like room that accomaded 4 sick children and a broken old couch for moms to sleep. Its really sad. I as an individual want to make difference to children in my country because I am inspired by healthcare of Atlanta. someone from this kind hospital please advise me how to fundraise and through donations and sponsors to open a state of the art healthcare in south Africa. I really want to to make a difference to scared innocent kids healthcare of Atlanta for kids is an inspiration to the world my humble blessings to one and all.

They're the best and have the sweetest nurses. If it weren't for him, id be dead, thank you dr.k, my family and I will be forever grateful for you. Thank you doctor and choa. You guys are the best
My daughter had been suffering from knee pain for five weeks and after seeing her pediatrician twice and an orthopedist twice, it was finally agreed that she needed to see a rheumatologist. After calling Children's Healthcare, I was given an appointment six weeks out!!! She was out on the emergency waiting list, but was told the wait is usually three months and that we were lucky. Given my daughter was in constant pain and unable to walk or sleep properly, I was dumb founded. Six weeks later, it would have only been an act of God that would have made me miss that appointment. The act of God was a car accident in the middle of rush hour! I had left in plenty of time to make sure I was at least thirty minutes early, but as it was, we were twenty minutes late. They refused to see my daughter! Another desperate mother was there with the same problem. I was told that the doctor in question had made this day available and that she had put her own children with a sitter and so didn't want to be late to collect them! I also had to put my other two children with a sitter and I'm a single mother. They offered me another appointment, but given the hell and stress they put me through because of other peoples bad driving, I will never go there again. If they truly cared about the children they served they'd hire more doctors, so they won't keep children in pain for three months at a time. It is criminal. glad there are some parents on this board that didn't have to watch their seven-year old suffer with acute pain, because of a shortage of doctors. Didn't know this was a third world country!
The Recruiters here are very arrogant and nonchalant. They will reach out to you and make you feel as though you're qualified and they love your resume. However, when you reach back out to them, they completely ignore you. I really wish their were other childrens hospital because unless your friends with HR or buddies with the right people, you will not get hired here.
Children's Healthcare saved my life in 2002. While the initial emergency room visit was NOT helpful, and my illness could have been prevented, once I was place in the main hospital the care I was given was exceptional. I had a series of specialists working on me to figure out what exactly was going on, and eventually the figured it out. God honestly saved my life, but used to doctors at Children's Healthcare to do exactly that. I was 12 years old and had bacterial meningitis as well as encephalitis. However, the only symptom I had was an excruciating headache. (which is why the emergency room sent me home multiple times) Once I was placed in the hospital and the infection took over and caused a stroke and a seizure, and was in the ICU for 6 days was when the doctors found the bacteria. My parents could have sued and gotten a lot out of the situation, but they were so greatful for what the doctors did for me, they had an extensive meeting and now the emergency room tests for meningitis WITHOUT all the regular symptoms. Also, they changed the "normal" white blood count in order to catch bacteria early on. Childrens Healthcare has wonderful nurses and doctors and strive to do everything they can to improve and better help the children in the Atlanta area. Thank you Scottish Rite!!
