Dr. Lorri Phipps
I consider it a privilege to care for your child and do so as if he or she were my very own. I have always dreamed of owning my own pediatric practice and in 2017 that dream came true. It’s a practice that operates like one I’d want to take my child to as a parent. One where you can reach a doctor at any time day or night when your child is ill, where the doctor will even come to you because she knows what it’s like to worry about a sick child.
To provide relationship-based primary health care to your children, from a mindset of true caring, in our office, through telemedicine, or in your home, when your family NEEDS it, 24/7/365!
