My husband and son went to Cincinnati Children's Hospital this past week for Alex's 3rd annual checkup. I have a few questions about this visit.
First, this was the first year that Alex did not see Dr. Wong on a scheduled visit (they said hi to each other in the hallway). He did see a dr. (Russian woman)...I don't have her name with me at this moment...sorry. My husband was very happy with her and liked her but we were not prepared that we were not seeing Dr. Wong. Does anyone else visit Ciny and not see her?
2. The PT person (Ann or Michelle) spoke to Will and Alex about possibly getting this type of wheelchair. It is a power assist manual wheelchair..See this link:
My son, Alex did not understand why she was showing this chair to them, because he has a scooter (for 3 years) which he loves. He is telling his dad, "Dad, I don't want a wheelchair". Just wondering if anyone has used this or has it been recommended to any other family? I think most boys ride scooters.
Unfortunately, this visit did not go as smoothly as the previous 2 years...(I think they spoiled us) ha ha... Years past, they went from one appt to the next, with little wait time, out of there by 2:00 or 3:00. This year, was some appt. went late, waiting 2 hours for someone to show up and never did, appts. moved around etc. I know this does sometimes happen. I just hope this was a "unusual unfortunate day". Maybe, her patient load is increasing and this is part of the reason this happened.
But, all in all, we love Dr. Wong and team and appreciate everything they do for us, and we are pleased that Alex is still doing well.
