Alison Escalante, MD

Philosophy of Care

The pediatrician is a partner, resource and sometimes a teacher for parents working to raise happy healthy kids. I foster a partnership with parents and actively seek their thoughts in medical decisions. There are many times in medicine when there are two or three valid options, and I think it is important for parents to understand the options and for us to decide together. However, I am good in a crisis and have no problem taking the driver's seat when a child is very ill.

The COVID-19 outbreak is scary, and it’s not going away quickly. So how can we take the pressure off of parents so they can get back to parenting well?

Parents have a way of giving speeches when they are worried. But in a scary situation, kids do better if we don’t over-explain things to them. They don’t need to know everything we’ve seen on the news and every story we’ve heard. Instead, it helps to focus on meeting them where they are. Here’s how to get started talking with your child about coronavirus (COVID-19).
