Diet plans can include complete meal replacements, partial meal replacements, high protein/low calorie plans, low and very low calorie plans, as well as maintenance strategies. All of these approaches will be customized for your needs.

Students

 

During the course of the year,  we are thrilled and honored to have students from a variety of schools spending time with us.  Their purpose is to learn pediatrics, and these schools have deemed us to be exceptional in delivering Pediatric Care.   WE benefit in that these students keep us up to date and on our feet.  Please welcome them as we do,  but if you have concerns,  please let us know.

We are lucky to have Dr. John Accerino and Dr. Vicky Mirisis with us during the week.  Please help us make them welcome.
