“We are very happy with the doctors at Southdale Peds. We drive from Lino Lakes to get here and think it's definitely worth the long drive!”
“We have had great experience with all of the doctors we've seen here. I especially appreciate the great care our children have received as babies when two of them needed more critical care and hospital stays. I also really appreciate the nurse line and after hours nurse connection. This is so important to me, as it got me to take my seven week old baby into Children's Hospital right away. Thank you for all you do.”
To My Patients:
I have been at Southdale Pediatrics more than 24 years---long enough to see a whole generation of patients grow up and move on to have their own families. Each and every one of you has a special place in my heart and I am grateful that you have allowed me to be a part of your lives. I am constantly reminded of those moments, both joyful and difficult, when you have placed your trust in me. I have done all I can to deserve that trust.
There comes a time, though, as difficult as it is, to say goodbye. As of January 1st 2013, I will be retiring, and moving on to the next chapter of my life. You will not be forgotten. I have saved so many notes and pictures from you and I know they will fill me with many happy memories.
Fortunately, I will be leaving you in good hands. My colleagues at Southdale Pediatrics are the most experienced, compassionate pediatricians you can find. I have been blessed to be a part of this group and I am confident that I am leaving you in good hands. I hope over the next few months I will have the opportunity to thank you all.
