Dr. Pelina sees both my daughter and son. As a young mom, I rely heavily on the doctors discretion when my children are sick. I have had the opportunity to have different pediatricians oversee the care of my daughter (eldest child) and no one compares to Dr. Pelina. He is compassionate and truly loves what he does. He is accommodating in each and every way possible. He truly cares for his little patients. I am amazed! Our family has been blessed to have him as our children's doctor. We love him
