This site is specifically for parents of kids with clefts being treated at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, but I hope that there will be information that is helpful to all parents of kids with clefts. If you are just starting to learn about clefts, I would suggest starting with the "General Information" topic and going from there.

Parent Comments:

"We have been with Dr. Motoki from the very start and love him. [Our child]'s lip looks so good."

"My daughter's surgeon is Motoki, he is awesome. At first I didn't think that he had very good bedside manners, but as time has went on, he has gotten alot better. I was devastated at first and had a lot of questions, and his receptionist ... was great, explaining things to me, every time we went to his office she would come sit by me and talk. And I would even call her on the phone with questions and she would take time to talk to me."

"I would recommend Dr. Motoki. We have been with him from the begaining and he has always done a wonderful job with the repairs. I've never felt uncomfortable asking a dumb question, and he explains things well... He's been good at what he does, putting us at ease and treats us with respect. Sometime a specialist can come off high and mighty and I never get that from him."

"We have Dr. Motoki and we love him. I also love his staff."

"He is wonderful, and conservative, which I love!"

"His work is awesome."

"We chose Dr. Motoki and have been really happy with him so far. He's not the best at small talk, but you know he'll be straight with you about the good and the bad things that can happen. My husband and I really need that. Also, we can always get in touch with his nurse (who is super friendly and nice!) when we have questions."

"We also use Dr. Motoki for [our child]'s cleft palate and he has been wonderful. I don't know if you know this but Dr. Morales trained him 20 years ago and we are confident in his skills. I could go on and on about some other reasons why we chose him but I won't bore everyone with that. I have been very frustrated with other Dr.s on the team and Dr. Motoki has validated them and supported our choice to have [our child] treated by another ENT. So remember when choosing a surgeon there are a lot members involved and the surgeon is a small portion, but very important one."
