Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bowman "Starting at birth, a child s body and brain grow very quickly. Children learn to move their bodies, play, and communicate. We call this developmental growth . It is important to closely monitor your child s physical and developmental growth. This is especially true during the first three years of life! Children who were born early, or were very sick at birth, have an increased risk of having some problems with physical and developmental growth. The DAC staff will work closely with you to follow your child s physical and developmental progress."

Patient Comments (3)

She is not at all a doctor I would recommend to any parents, especially to those seeking help for their special needs child like me. She doesn't explain much of anything and doesn't seem to have any real solutions for serious issues. I will be looking for a new primary doctor for my daughter.
