Why I am a Pediatric Provider?
In medical school you choose paths: medicine or surgery, and then you pick a specialty in that group. I chose medicine and working with children. In pediatrics, the patients usually get better and parents are doing their very best, for the most part, to do the best they can for their child. Pediatricians seem to be the most happy of the specialists. The children themselves make you smile and laugh. It is a privilege to be a part of someone's family and share tears and success.
