  • Dr. Alt: I always wanted to be a doctor and I've also always enjoyed being around kids.  I found a good way to bring both of those together in pediatrics.  I realized while on other rotations during medical school that they couldn't compare to my time in pediatrics.

Best piece of advice for a new parent?

  • Dr. Stransky: Try not to stress! You are not alone. As pediatricians we are here to make sure your baby thrives and answer all your questions. 
  • Dr. Alt: Babies are made to survive new parents and the vast majority of parenting is common sense.  You can do it!

Catch phrase you are most well-known for, or something you say often when seeing patients? 

  • Dr. Stransky: "Control the controllable!" I love this quote because it is so true. Much of life is out of our control so we must remember to focus on the controllable. 
  • Dr. Alt: "You're doing a great job!"  As parents you don't often get positive feedback and sometimes it's nice to hear that your child is growing up and being raised beautifully!
