Ratings and Reviews
My son paediatrician recommended this app to help with his anxiety regarding medical imaging. He looooves the game, understands how everything in the app and at the hospital works and it’s great as a conversation starter without having him on the defensive. Brilliant!!! Fingers crossed it will do the trick!
Omg thanks so much
