 Pediatrics

 

Our board-certified Pediatricians specialize in caring for children who are chronically ill or may have a serious disease. In conjunction with preventative care and chronic disease management, our pediatricians also diagnose and treat infections, injuries, genetic defects, and malignancies. While childhood and adolescence are crucial periods for forming positive habits and building a healthy outlook on life, not every child has a chance to adequately do so. Our pediatricians are advocates for children who suffer from psychosocial issues, such as homelessness, violence or abuse in the family, and substance abuse of a child’s parent or guardian. Our pediatricians are here to help our children succeed in health and in life, no matter the circumstances.
