Getting to know each child, having them look forward to coming to see me, and spending the time to actually become part of their family—these are some of the reasons I love being a pediatrician. In my office we don't just talk about sore throats or ear infections, we also talk about how many sugar drinks they've had, how often they're turning off the TV to play outside, and how much calcium they've had that day. I love making a sick child feel better, but I also love teaching a child how to remain healthy their whole life. I'm happy to spend 10 minutes longer so there's time for education, advice and laughter as well as treatment.
I've won a number of Patient Choice Awards, but the best compliment is when a child you've cared for grows up and begins bringing their own children to you. After 50-plus years as a pediatrician, you might say I've become an expert not just in diagnosis, but in helping kids make good choices, use their day wisely, and successfully move into adulthood.
