Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Perkins "Caring for children is a rewarding job, mostly. We care for their physical ailments, monitor and guide development and educate their parents with every visit. Medicine is not always the answer but when it is, we offer over 21 years of experience. No child is the same just as all parents are not the same. Some children are more challenging than others but we are there. We listen to you and your concerns as you know your child best and offer the best medical advice for your situation. "
