We provide comprehensive care from birth to 18, and we have a lab in the office as well as X-ray facilities so we can provide comprehensive care right in the office. We try to provide same-day sick visits and getting patients in even on the weekends. We have Saturday morning hours and Sunday afternoon hours, and especially try to accommodate patients on the weekends so they don’t have to go to an urgent care or emergency room where they aren’t previously known. I try to have a minimalist approach. Sometimes in medicine I think less is better than more. I try to be especially child-friendly when dealing with kids and to do things in a playful manner. I try always to balance the invasiveness of a procedure or investigations versus the benefits or outcomes and try to provide the best service for the individual patient.
