Dr. Dobbs is both a wonderful pediatrician and a caring mother. It is this second quality that makes her so special! She understands the sleepless hell new Moms go through, not to mention nursing issues and many of those other things that can so stress out a new Mom during her baby's first year.
She is always willing to answer as many questions as I have, even if she has other patients waiting. She will give a full, detailed explanation instead of just brushing me off because this is not in her 'schedule'.
She is also conscious of the great variation in childrens' development and does not make you feel inadequate if your child is a little late reaching a certain milestone.
Dr. Dobbs is my favorite doctor (and she's not even technically *my* doctor)!
