I believe optimal health care is achieved by partnering with families. Physicians have scientific knowledge and a broad base of experience to share, but families know their children the best. By listening to each other and evaluating all available information, we can work together to formulate an appropriate care plan with an emphasis on preventive care for each individual child."– Barbara Ferré, MD
