Welcome to our Medical Home Coordinators!

Introducing our Medical Home Coordinator team!

What is a Medical Home Coordinator? A medical home coordinator is someone who helps our office in finding resources for parents. It is a link for the families to the physicians. They do everything from help find resources for Mental health issues, special needs resources, social groups, of finding a specialist doctor for your child. They also help with referrals, prior authorizations and a various other reports and education for our patients. Both of our Medical Home Coordinators are also Lactation Consultants. We love having them at our office and want you to know a little more about each of them.
