"Being a Pediatrician is not just what I do, it's who I am. I take seriously the responsibility that parents trust me to make the best medical decisions for their children. The profession of pediatrics is a journey that I take with each patient. Whether I empathize with anxious parents of a sleepless newborn, celebrate their child's successes, help a parent cope with a child's serious illness, or help parents deal with separation as their now young adult goes to college or the military, I am reminded that the family has honored me by making me part of their journey. I enjoy my career immensely and can not imagine being engaged in any other pursuit." – David Henderson, MD
