What Makes Us Unique?

You will always see Dr. Child during your office visit, not a physician assistant or nurse practitioner.

We emphasize the well-being of the whole child, rather than a set of symptoms to be treated. This means that your child’s treatment will consider your child’s history, personality, and sensitivities.
