I strongly recommend fully vaccinating kids against preventable diseases on the schedule approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). I do not support nonmedical vaccine exemptions.
I partner with the family as the children grow from infancy to young adulthood. I believe in helping families through illness, development, growth, and the joys and tribulations of being a family."– Richard Barsotti, MD

"Dr. Barsotti was my pediatrician as a boy, having only the fondest memories of his care-- when my wife and I had our children; he was the first I looked to. His genuinely caring demeanor combined with extensive wisdom have yet to be matched in my book. Certainly a superlative human and practitioner of medicine."– Shaun D.
