My philosophy is to involve the child as much as possible in the office visit and promote education & learning for the family unit as a whole. Having children of my own, I try to incorporate the lessons I have learned as a parent with the knowledge I have gained as a Pediatrician to help families throughout the different stages of their child's life.

Dr. Dovidio is such a great pediatrician. He takes his time to explain what is going on and answers all of our questions. As a first time parent, it was important to find an excellent pediatrician that cares about his patients and Dr. Dovidio is one of them. Always gives that reassurance that everything will be ok.
