My Favorite Pediatrician - Part 1

Well, technically he isn't my Pediatrician, but he is my favorite Pediatrician.
He has been Julien's Pediatrician since Julien was a toddler and he has been with me since the very beginning with Addie.
He was the one who sat in my hospital room talking to me not long after my sweet Addie was born.
He was the one who sat in an exam room and told me with compassion that the sweet baby that I held in my arms was more special than I realized and he was the one who sat through my tears, listened to my fears and irrational thought process and he is the one who has taken the brunt of my frustration.
He has been by my side and he never gave up on Addie.
I can tell you with absolute certainty that those are not qualities that very many physician's possess.
I don't know if the hardest years are now behind us or if the hardest years are still to come, but I do feel pretty certain that I can turn to him for whatever it is that I may need and he will be there.
If you are in the market for a new Pediatrician, check out Greenvale Pediatrics and let me go ahead and address the two main questions that I got after the last time I talked about our Pediatrician:
1. No. He is not single.
2. Yes. He is happily married - with children.

Addie isn't shying away from Dr. Dudgeon, she is trying to keep an eye on the stethoscope...

He is the best. He is my son's pediatrician as well and I have never met a nicer person. He takes the time every time I am there to answer my questions and never rushes me. I highly recommend him.
