Lauren chose pediatrics in order to work with children in a meaningful way. “I enjoy partnering with parents and children to help shape healthy lifestyles.” Teaching is very important to Lauren and she enjoys helping children and their families understand their health. “It is an honor to be able to work with families as their children grow. ”
Lauren is very interested in preventive care, helping parents and children understand how to be proactive in making healthy decisions. She has specific interest in guiding patients and family through the stages of child development.
“When not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love being outdoors and am always up for an adventure.”
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.
