Silverdale Pediatrics is the medical practice I own that my father started in 1971. He and I were in practice together for 16 years before his death in 2017. Since then, I have been working solo.
My goals are to educate my patients so they can advocate for themselves. My practice is old-fashioned. I use paper charts instead of impersonal electronic medical records. I fight against the corporatization of my profession in order to preserve the physician-patient relationship, something I hold sacred. I know all my patients by name.
I am a justice-seeker and still have much to learn as a mother and pediatrician. Whether you are a physician, healthcare worker, or patient, I hope you enjoy this “front line” perspective on the politics of medicine.
