Message from the Practice

Year in Review

2019 was an awesome year at McKnight Pediatrics. We experienced wonderful growth and with growth comes change. Though change can be difficulty we are grateful to our staff and families for their tremendous flexibility and abilities to adjust.
We look forward to continued growth and change in 2020. For one thing, Dr Cohen has decided to move her career in a different direction.
This year her family grew with the addition of a third son. We understand her decision, as the demands of traditional pediatric practice can be overwhelming. We wish her much success in her endeavor, leaving to be an integrative medicine practitioner. It goes without saying that the patients and families who Dr. Cohen provided care for during her time at McKnight Pediatrics will continue to receive excellent care by their new provider.
