PHILOSOPHY OF CARE: Going to the pediatrician’s office shouldn’t feel scary or like a chore, it should be a time to hear about all of the
things that you are doing great at and a time to get some tips for anything you are struggling with or have questions about. My job is to help my patients and their families be happy and healthy in a way that makes sense in their lives. Every child and every family is a little different, and sometimes that means you have to try things a little differently to help find a solution that fits with each particular family’s lifestyle and values. My main role as a pediatrician is to be a support system for families and help them lead their most happy and healthy lives!
