Medical practices are increasingly pressured financially by rising healthcare costs and expanding healthcare legislation, and in turn respond with attempts to expand their patient base by scheduling as many patient encounters in a day as possible. But what gets sacrificed in this incessant rush to get bigger?
For Dr. MaryEllen Cavalier and the staff at joy & Crown Pediatric Specialists, the goal is not to be the biggest. Rather, the goal is to be the best—to allow enough time in a patient visit so that all the important questions get answered, so that instructions and recommendations are clearly presented and absolutely understood, and so that even the smallest patients feel safe, valued, and ready for life’s opportunities and challenges. The goal is to be a true, patient-centered medical home, from cradle to college.
That is why Joy & Crown Pediatric Specialists endeavors every day to be North Texas’s premier pediatrics practice—where patients and their families are offered both expertise and empathy, convenient location and convenient scheduling and communication options, coordinated referral services with local, regional, and national leaders in pediatric subspecialties and, most importantly, continuity of care.
