Please join us in honoring the memory of our founder, Dr Donald J Annino (1927-2022) He was our respected colleague, cherished mentor, and above all, our beloved friend. Dr Annino was ahead of his time in almost every aspect of primary care pediatrics, but his support for physicians' family time, especially for us working moms, is his greatest legacy. He will be sorely missed.

Our primary aim continues to be keeping our patients and community safe.
