“We are honored to be awarded this highest designation for our pediatric
services,” said MCMC Chief Medical Officer Serene Perkins, M.D.
“MCMC is fortunate to have a wonderful pediatric team whose knowledge,
skill and commitment to serving our young patients shines through each
and every day.”
As Dr. Perkins explains, pediatric physicians provide general medical care
to infants, young children, and teenagers, including preventive care,
routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests.
“Children may have a hard time fully understanding why they're
visiting the office or the nature of their illness,” said Dr. Perkins.
“Our doctors and pediatric specialists do a fantastic job communicating
with children and their families, easing their worries and helping them
through the experience. Our team loves working with pediatric patients
and their families and helps them feel safe and healthy.”
