I believe pediatric care is most effective when children, their parents, and pediatrician work together toward a common goal of good health. I encourage questions from parents and children and appreciate the opportunity to educate families about illnesses and treatment options. Together, we work through the challenges and joys of parenting. Whenever possible, my focus is on preventive health care, integrating my training in traditional evidence-based medicine with a more holistic approach to wellness."– Kathleen Mooney, MD
