Welcome to Pediatric Medicine
Dr. Jennifer Carlson • Dr. Brad Friesen
Dr. William Gerson • Dr. Debra Hartswick • Dr. Patty Rissacher
Our practice was established in 1968 and moved to its current site in 1974. We provide the highest quality healthcare to infants, children and adolescents, consistent with regional and national guidelines. The goal of the practice is to provide care for children and their families in a friendly, courteous and caring atmosphere. All of our doctors, nurses and staff adhere to strict standards of confidentiality and professional behavior.
Families who come to Pediatric Medicine select one of the physicians to be their primary pediatrician. Routine well-child visits are scheduled with that doctor. However, there may be times when a family requires advice or an acute office visit and the primary doctor is unavailable. Because the doctors, nurses and office staff work as a team they can offer assistance. The physicians frequently collaborate with each other and every patient's record is available to the other medical staff members. They can easily review ongoing medical problems, prescription medications, lab results and previous consultations.
This site will give you a lot of information about our practice but don't hesitate to contact us by phone if you have unanswered questions.
