My experience working with Dr. Jimenez, Dr. Barone, Wai and the rest of the [craniosynostosis] staff was so amazing and effortless. They made this difficult time in my family's life so much easier! I couldn't believe how short the procedure and recovery time were- it was a miracle that I will forever be grateful for. I'm so glad I found his Web site- it changed my daughter & family's life. Thank you so much.

I'm so thankful for the wonderful healthcare we have in this country as exemplified by your staff. I think God that I was able to choose Dr. Jimenez and Dr. Barone to take care of my little girl.

With much appreciation,
Rebecca

Dr. Jimenez,

As you can imagine, most parents are not prepared to hear that their infant child has to have head surgery to correct a condition that is damaging tot he child's development. Most people, like us, do not even know what Craniosynostosis is, what causes it or even if it is treatable.

When we began our search for a greater understanding of the subject, we came across Dr. Barone and your name several times in referrals, articles, and Internet links. You reputation in this new approach of treating Craniosynostosis is impeccable. Your treatment became very appealing to us due to the lack of trauma not only to the child, but also to the emotional stability of the parents.

I would like to express our sincerest gratitude to you and your team for their hard work, dedication on this new surgery approach and most importantly for the work performed on our son, Myles. We are very happy with the results.

I would also like to recognize Wai-Yee Choi for her role. The information she gave us was very supportive and helpful. Wai-Yee's communication from what to expect once we arrived in the parking lot to what to expect post recovery was as precise as the surgery. Please share our thanks to her.

We realize the helmet is an essential part of the recovery process even though it is the most difficult for us, as parents, to accept. We though we'd share the enhancements we made to the helmet with you. It has made it easier for us to accept it on a daily basis.

Again, thank you for everything. We are confident we made the right choice on Myles's behalf.

With kind regards, we remain
Forever grateful,

George & Jennifer

Words cannot express our gratitude to you, your wife and Wai. We truly feel that you were an answer to our prayers. I knew the second I got off the phone with Wai after our first conversation that this procedure was the right one for our baby. We are so thankful for your desire to create a better surgery for these babies. You have truly blessed our lives and we will forever be grateful. Thanks to you all for your love and compassion. You helped turn a tough circumstance into a wonderful experience.

With all our gratitude and love,
Jody, Cherie & Rigdon

Dear Dr. Jimenez, Dr. Barone, Tiffany, Darrent, Lisa, Ericka, & Star Cranial Team,

We might not have the right words to describe our gratitude and happiness to have found you.

When our daughter Natalia was diagnosed with metopic craniosynostosis, it was for sure the worst news we have ever received. We didn’t know what to do or where to go, but thanks to God and several medical references we ended in your hands!

Since the first moment we arrived to the hospital everybody was so nice, so helpful. Everybody listen to our concerns and questions, so little by little our hearts were filled with confidence that this was the right procedure to do for Natalia.

As parents there is nothing more important than to see our children healthy and happy. We cannot see Natalia smile, walk and play without thank you to each of you!

We really thank God and all of you for your help, support and most important for had taken care of Natalia.

God blesses each of you and your families.

Sincerely,
Garcia Family
