South Dade Neonatology – Patient Stories

Patient StoriesAt 35 weeks, after 9 weeks of bed rest, my son was born via C-Section. Throughout my hospital bed rest, the doctors of SDN would visit me periodically to provide professional support and to prepare us for the possibility of having our son in the NICU. To our dismay, Andres was born with pre-mature lungs and remained in the NICU for 18 days.

We clearly remember walking into the NICU to meet our son for the first time and receiving a comforting welcome and embrace from the doctors and supportive nurses informing us of Andres’ condition and preparing us for the days ahead. The communication and overwhelming support continued everyday forward until our discharge.

The care Andres received from SDN was top notch. Thanks to this exceptional group of neonatologists we have a healthy, mischievous, sweet little boy who fills our heart with love and brightens up our everyday.
