About Us

Providing the best medical care to keep families close to home

We are a group of outstanding pediatricians with over 60 years of combined experience caring for children in the hospital setting. As a collaborative team, we provide on-demand consultations and are available 24/7 at Firelands Regional Medical Center should your child require emergent attention. Our clinicians work collaboratively and share in the philosophy that your child’s well-being is dependent equally on the science – and art – of medicine. You can expect that your child will receive world-class service from our experienced pediatricians. We are “Humor in Medicine” trained and incorporate humor and smiles in the care we provide.

Your time is important to us. We will work closely with emergency room staff and other specialists to provide prompt care with short wait times during your child’s hospital stay. If needed, our direct admit service saves time and ensures continuity of care from the hospital to your child’s primary care providers.

Humor in Medicine

As much as we know about how the body works, there is still much to be learned. When people are stressed, their bodies release steroids causing their immune systems to work less efficiently. For example, we find children become sick more often, or do not grow well when their mothers are stressed. So, we wonder if relieving stress will improve our immune systems and help us heal faster.

Working in the hospital setting allows us to provide relief during an often stressful situation. We hope that bringing a smile to the faces of our patients and their families will relieve stress and help with a speedy recovery. More information on this exciting field is available below in a recent study our practice conducted at Firelands Medical Center. Additional information can be found at dreamdoctors.org.
