Always on the lookout for factors that can affect school performance, Dr. Verna is proficient at managing chronic illnesses, such as asthma and diabetes, which can lead to lost days of school and sports.

I love doctor Verna! She takes the time to listen to everything you have to say. She makes me feel like I’m being heard and involved with the treatment of my kids even if it’s just a simple cough. She’s amazing and fully explains everything. I recommend her and children’s medical group to every new parent I come in contact with :)
