“Lauren has become an integral part of the pediatric emergency medicine department. She is invaluable at providing patient care and is particularly talented with everyday pediatric procedures, such as suturing, LPs and splinting, and she performs them in a manner that is comforting to the patients and their families. Her background in not only general pediatrics but emergency pediatrics and that has been particularly beneficial to our pediatric emergency medicine group.” – John H. Stuemky, MD, FAAP
