Pediatrician + Parents = Pediatric Partners

As our name implies, we want our relationship to be a partnership. As such, we have a few methods our Doctors and Nurse Practitioners think works well with our parents and patients:

  • We welcome your input; no one knows your child better than you! We will discuss treatment options with you and help you choose which will work best for your family.
  • Like any relationship, we may tell you some things you don’t want to hear and also expect you to be honest and forthright with us.
  • If we suggest something you know won’t work for you, speak up and we will try to come up with another plan.
    Our mutual goal as your pediatric physician is your child’s physical and mental health.
  • As a pediatric practice, we tend to be conservative in the use of antibiotics and medications because of potential side effects.
  • We are very “pro-vaccine,” because our experience show that the benefits clearly out-weigh the very small risk of side effects.
  • We believe in and practice “evidence based medicine.” This means we have to stay up-to-date with the latest research and offer treatments that have been shown to work in good scientific studies.

If you have any additional questions about special health care needs please contact us at           (919) 787-9555.  We look forward to meeting you and your family!
