Dr. Sweeney is a pediatrician working with a team of expert healthcare providers working with children in our communities. “I love pediatrics because I get to work (and play!) with kids. I find it incredibly rewarding to watch children grow and develop, and to build lasting relationships with them and their families. I love being able to provide anticipatory guidance to patients and parents, whether that’s through the course of development or the course of an illness.”
Dr. Sweeney enjoys the whole spectrum of general pediatric care, from birth through adolescence, and promoting healthy living at every step of the way.
“Outside of work, my spare time is devoted to my husband and our daughter. I also enjoy reading, hiking, and travel.”
Doctors of internal medicine, also called “internists”, are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor” because they often act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems. Doctors of internal medicine treat the whole person, not just internal organs.
Pediatrics is the branch of medicine dedicated to the medical care of infants, children and adolescents. Treating a child is not like treating a miniature adult. A major difference between pediatrics and adult medicine is that children cannot make decisions for themselves. We support the health and well-being of children and are advocates for children’s health issues.
