Share Your Story: The Only Place to Go

Meet Charlotte, a patient seen by our orthopedic experts in the Fracture Clinic. Learn more about her journey back to recovery.

Blog written by Charlotte's mom, Susie, of Frisco, TX.

As a former childhood patient at Scottish Rite for Children in Dallas, I know the genuine love that is given to children when they are hurting and/or in medical need. The extra touch measures in kindness, patience, authenticity, creativeness and all out medical intelligence is over the top! This December, when my 8-year-old daughter fell off the top of the slide on the school playground, I didn’t hesitate on where I needed to take her!
I immediately knew that the only place to go was Scottish Rite. Thankfully, the Frisco location is right up the street from us. Charlotte was in so much pain and traumatized, as she had never broken any bones or experienced a fall of this nature. As soon as we arrived, there was an entire staff of loving professionals that came to her side. Everyone we interacted with spoke to her gently. The building even speaks to a child’s heart and eyes. All of this allowed me to be present with this youngest angel of mine thru it all, minus the operating room of course. 
No matter who we came into contact with - the professional security guards at the entrance, assistants who help get you checked in, nurses, techs of various kinds, the psychology counselor (yes, I know! Right?!?), the doctors - it is one special experience. Charlotte is healing perfectly and doing great. She is eager to get back to swimming and playing tennis and loves that her dog Peaches has been by her side throughout it all.

To us, Scottish Rite means genuine love, care and healing.

We are thankful for everyone who has helped us throughout this process, plus everyone who has helped settle this momma’s nerves along the way! We could not be happier that Charlotte has received such amazing care from Dr. Gill and all of the other professionals at Scottish Rite.
