Why I love my job

I love to work with families and their children because I receive tremendous satisfaction from seeing kids grow up healthy and happy. I like the idea of being there from the time they are born, and making sure they grow up to be healthy adults. We as pediatricians essentially lay the foundation of health on which the rest of adult life depends.
