A Note from Dr. Dison

"I loved the opportunity to train at a freestanding children’s hospital, focused completely on pediatric care. Residency at CHKD provided excellent training by dedicated mentors from many pediatric specialties. It is very reassuring to know the pediatric specialists that I refer my patients to and to have confidence in their decisions. I am grateful to be part of the CHKD team."
