Alison Escalante, MD
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.

I am a writer and I am endlessly curious. I am also a foodie and I just love reading to and playing with my kids!
