Our practice is founded on the conviction that the work we do is extremely important. The importance of this work is made clear by looking at it's three components - -Helping sick children feel better -Helping healthy children stay healthy -Helping parents become competent and confident in their parenting skills We believe in a "holistic" approach to pediatric care, beyond the mere treatment of disease. For that reason, we feel that such matters as nutrition, sleep, physical fitness, child development and behavioral issues are also vital areas of concern. Finally, we place a special emphasis on being available to our patients and their families with extended hours, easy phone access and same-day sick appointments. We don't pretend to always be 'healers", but we do make a point of seeing children through their illness.
