Continuity and Consistency of Care
Relationships with patients and parents are nurtured over time, resulting in profound familiarity with a child’s history. Eventually, our diagnoses and recommendations may draw as much from accumulated insight as from observation of present symptoms.
Education of Parents and Children
We provide “anticipatory guidance” to parents on approaching developmental milestones. Kids of teachable age are introduced to the basics of self-care. And for the early teens, we offer cautionary instruction on sexual responsibility, pregnancy and addictive behaviors.
Adherence to American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines
The AAP, the nation’s largest and most respected professional organization in the field, continually reviews standards of practice, issuing updated guidelines that reflect the latest research and technological advances.
