Time for balloons, streamers, confetti, candles, wishes …
West Plano Pediatrics is celebrating its 25th birthday on August 7th!!
Just like many of you, I ask myself a familiar question: “How did time fly by so quickly?” At this time 25 years ago, I completed my residency program at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas with dreams of being someone’s childhood doctor. Those early days in the office were filled with planning, preparing, marketing, and waiting… waiting for patients to come and see us in our new office space at the campus of Texas Health Presbyterian of Plano.
Fast forward the years and now our office is filled with newborn babies, excited Kindergartners, dramatic pre-teens, and graduating high school seniors. In addition to the number and ages of patients growing, our WPP team of physicians has grown from 2 to 5, with Dr. Adams joining us in 2018.
As I reflect over the years of working as a pediatrician, my heart overflows with joy and gratitude. My heart is joyful because I have been able to soothe a crying infant, to witness a screaming toddler return later to smile at me as a preschooler, and to share in the excitement of graduation and new dreams. So, Thank You to all the families who have entered our office and shared their children with us! My heart is also grateful to my colleagues, partners, and office staff. Without these amazing people at my workplace, the extraordinary care that we provide for our patients would cease.
Although COVID-19 has changed our normal everyday routines, I am blessed to be writing these words in good health and in good spirit. Having a supportive community of caring individuals is what gives me strength to continue to be a physician during uncertain times. It is my prayer that each WPP family will find our office as part of your supportive community for now and in the future.
Lastly, as we celebrate 25 years at the office, we would love to hear your stories of what WPP has meant to you and your family. We appreciate your 5-star reviews and your thoughtful words of kindness! Our theme for this year is celebrating 25 years and counting…!!!
