My son was born with a diaphragmatic hernia in 2008. It was a complete surprise to me and my husband. He was born in ventura county and helicoptered to huntington hospital that night. He was operated on 4 days later, by Dr. Meunchow. She saved his life, and is the most compassionate Dr. I have ever met. She explained everything very well, and seemed very confident. Our outcome was wonderfull. She is our angel, and without Dr. Meunchow my son would not have survived. She has performed 2 other necessary surgeries since, and each one was a success. We thank Dr. Meunchow, and would reccomend her to all our friends and family. She is a great doctor.

My son also had Pyloric Stenosis and Dr. Muenchow was the best dr. we could have asked for. Every, doctor, nurse, hospital worker at Huntington hospital seemed to know her name and lavished compliments on her for her expertise and for simply being an outstanding human being. She really seems to have a heart of gold and she called us at our home to check on our little one once we were discharged. She really is the best of the best!

Dr. Muenchow saved my son's life. His pediatrician kept misdiagnosing my son until I insisted on an ultrasound. The ultrasound detected that my baby had pyloric stenosis and it was quite advanced already. We had to rush my son to the hospital and Dr. Muenchow was able to save him. She is a true pro, she's kind and extremely informative. I sent her huge bouquet of flowers after the whole ordeal. She was the light of hope we needed and she came through. This happened almost 8 years ago and I'll never forget it.

My daughter was born 15 years before I write this with an abdominal wall defect (omphalocele). Dr. Muenchow did a fabulous job of "putting her back together" the day after she was born, and my daughter has been problem-free in that respect since that time. She even did a great job taking a little tuck from inside for a "faux tummy button" (my name for it). I had no complaints and was very grateful to her for her personableness when we were very stressed before the birth and her surgical care and followup. My only possible question would be why she could not arrange to operate on my daughter the same day she was born rather than the day after; I was never quite satisfied with the answer I received.

We found Dr. Muenchow to be informative, extremely patient and generous with her expertise and time. She is a great surgeon. Her office staff is also helpful and competent. Hopefully, your child won't need a pediatric surgeon, but if you do, then Dr. Muenchow is a good surgeon, and Huntington is a terrific hospital.

Check this woman's background before letting her operate on your child. Speak to the hospital staff about her, privately, and see what they have to say. Call her on a weekend night and see if she'll call you back, as if it were emergent ...she won't. Know who you're dealing with before you make the most important decision for your child and then call Children's Hospital's Physician Referral for a good pediatric surgeon at: 323-660-2450 or any hospital ...just not Huntington.

Dr. Muenchow is located next to Huntington Hospital in Pasadena. I cannot say enough nice things about this woman. She is an excellent surgeon and truely just an extremely nice individual. My daughter needed surgery to have a cist removed and she's only 8 months old. Doctor Muenchow helped make the whole process so much smoother. She was very informative and helpful. There wasn't a visit to her that we didn't see her with a huge smile on her face. Both my husband and I agreed that she was the best doctor either of us had ever had the pleasure of meeting. If someone you know needs surgery I would highly recommend trying to have your insurance approve her. She's the best!
