Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Camitta "As a pediatric cardiologist I want Duke to be a place where I would send my own children my own family. For me thats the reason to come thats our philosophy thats how I work thats how we feel. I try to explain everything to the children and parents at the same time and make sure that I let the children ask questions not just the parents. Getting the children involved helps them understand more and not be afraid so much about whats happening. With adults its more of a decision-making process that involves the whole family. Im open and honest about what we can do and cant do and what I know and dont know. Im not telling them what to do but advising them and were working as a group to decide the best treatment options. Its fun working with children and fun seeing them be happy and get better and grow up. I see children that I diagnosed before birth and some of them are in high school now."
