I try to communicate with my patients and their parents in a clear, understandable way, allow time to listen to their comments, and make sure that they are comfortable with the treatment plan. No concern is too small when your child is ill, has a behavior or school problem, or needs guidance to maintain his or her health. We consider Snake River Pediatrics to be a part of the Treasure Valley community, and strive to be an advocate for the children that live here."
