Today is my last day at All Star Pediatrics. I joined the practice 30 years ago, when I was an inexperienced doctor just out of residency and a young mom of small kids.
It has been an honor and a privilege to provide medical care to you and your children. Some of my early patients now bring their own children to me. That continuity of care, watching your children grow and helping in some small way to raise them along with you, is the most joyous and rewarding aspect of being a pediatrician.
I cannot thank all of you enough for trusting me with your children. I have learned as much from you as I have tried to teach and guide you. I have laughed and cried with you, and I have loved every minute of these 30 years.
I will continue to write this blog for All Star Pediatrics. You may see me in the office with my own grandchildren, or see me out in the community. Please say hi, because I will remember you always!
i look forward to the next chapter in my life--family time, travel, and part-time work with Lurie Children's Hospital.
Til we meet again!
