Philosophy of Care

Kids are not simply small adults. Their care requires a special knowledge and compassion unique to children. I strive to help advise parents through the challenges of parenthood, while helping patients navigate through the journey from childhood to adulthood.

As a board certified pediatrician, I am committed to remaining current with the latest pediatric developments and approaches to children's health, in order to ensure that I am providing the best care possible.

Dr. Cafarella is a general pediatrician who provides care to infants, children, and adolescents.
