Disclaimer: Many thanks to CHOP at Virtua for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to seek out their services when my child is hurt or ill.
As a mother I always fear the day my son becomes sick and needs to be taken to an Emergency Room. Now that I live in New Jersey I am thankful knowing that I can go to a local Virtua and receive World-Class Pediatric Care Close to Home thanks to Virtua and CHOP teaming up.
When Jaiden was a baby he would constantly throw up after a bottle. I was a young single mom and I can’t not express how much this scared me. It just wasn’t normal for a child to not keep a single bottle down. This situation had me confused and tired.
I took my son to see his regular doctor who thankfully didn’t just brush it off or think it was just the formula. His doctor required further testing and that I go see a CHOP Doctor. Knowing how amazing CHOP Doctors are I was thankful to have my son under their care. They ran some test and discovered my son had GERD Reflex (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease).
Not only was I able to find out what was wrong with my baby, I also discovered ways to help him keep his food down and that he would grow out of it, in which he did. Knowing that I have World-Class Pediatric Care Close to Home is something I can feel at ease about. I want the best doctors to care for my son if anything is to go wrong. He is my world and deserves the best care possible.
Virtua is a pillar of the community and they are always there to treat those who come through those doors. Five years ago Virtua and CHOP have teamed up to bring the best possible care to those who need it.
The doctors and nurses are there with you every step of the way to help you with your concerns and treatment. They provide the highest quality of care possible and me, as a mother, this is something I look for. There is nothing worse then having a scared sick child. I expect the nurses and doctors to help comfort my child and not scare him any more then he already is.
I am thankful knowing I have such great care around the corner when I need it. If there ever comes a day my son gets hurt I know I will be heading to Virtua where they have great care and services and the best doctors available.
