Our Practice

We believe strongly in true "continuity of care," as your child will be seen by Dr. Vernon or Lauren Leatherland on a consistent basis, every time you visit the office. No surprises!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, pediatrics was simply this: Your pediatrician seeing you in the hospital with the birth of your newborn, then regularly throughout childhood, helping them to grow into happy/healthy young adults.

Oftentimes today, this is simply not the case. Pediatrics has become a land of empires where the motto is often "bigger means better" for the medical home. However, continuity is lost in that landscape. You may meet a different doctor or provider each time you visit the clinic, and speak to someone that you've never met in the middle of the night when your child is sick. Convenience also takes a backseat. Scheduling is a nightmare. The office phone lines are constantly busy. Mountains of paperwork await you at each visit.

It is our mission to change that experience. We believe in continuity of care. We also believe that top-notch medical treatment and a "comfortable and easy" experience can (and should!) co-exist
