Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Van Derwood "I treat infants, children and their parents, and provide comprehensive primary care with a focus on prevention and health maintenance. I encourage my patients to rely heavily on their primary care doctor for coordination of all their health care needs, so that they may receive the best available care. My emphasis is on family centered care, in a holistic and balanced context. I encourage new patients, especially families who are seeking a trustworthy advisor and partner in their own healthcare. I like it when my patients take ownership of their own health and challenge me with their own ideas."
