Practicing general pediatrics for the past 40 years has been a fun and rewarding experience. I have enjoyed working with children and helping them through any and every problem they may have. As a general philosophy, I think it’s important to keep both the parents and children informed throughout the entire diagnosis and treatment process. I’ve found that children do much better and feel more secure when they know what’s wrong and what the treatment process involves.
I believe the relationship between pediatrician and patient is a very special bond. I give immunizations myself because I feel children should know they can trust their doctor. Through the years, I have found that most children prefer this. My older patients have explained that it’s because they know and trust me.
