THE BEST! Coll was born w/ horseshoe kidneys. MAJOR surgery in Syr. N.Y. when 4. Moved to Fl. @ age 5. We've seen Dr. P 14 yrs running. She is ALWAYS the same. Totally present. A yr ago Coll was DX w/ Type 1 Diabetes. Dr. P helped me far more than the Endo/Diab Spec. Now Coll is away @ College & gets deathly ill. From E.R. in Boca Raton I call Dr. P. She says she has the flu. We leave ER w/ a "Virus" & no meds. Next day @ urgent care she gets DX- THE FLU! Dr. P=*Compassion*Empathy*Humor*Hope*

Wonderful doctor. Followed my baby from his traumatic birth/transfer to All Children's in St Pete's, through his outpatient care. She listens and addresses all concerns, examines my son thoroughly at every visit and is truly present at every visit we've had with her. Excellent bedside manner. Had her scheduler fit us in (she came early that day just so she could see us instead of us waiting 2 extra weeks). Will miss her since we are moving.
