Pediatric Care for Child Development in Paducah, Kentucky HealthTalks Transcript
Caitlyn Cecil, MD, Pediatrics:
It’s important to see your pediatrician on a regular basis to monitor the growth and development of your child and to get your routine vaccinations. It’s also important that the child becomes used to coming to the doctor and gets to know their pediatrician, and that the parents get to develop a relationship with their child’s pediatrician as well.
Shelbie Evans, Parent, Benton, Kentucky:
As a new mother, I felt like one of the most important things with Dr. Caitlin was she will collaborate with you. You don’t want to overstep your boundaries with a new mother. You want to listen to her intuitions. Dr. Caitlin definitely helps and feeds off of your motherly intuitions, and she collaborates care with you to do what’s best for your child.
I knew from the time that I started my medical training that I wanted to come back to Paducah. Paducah is my hometown. I love my hometown. When I came back, I had the opportunity to work with my dad starting out. It’s very cool to be able to see my dad’s former patients coming in with their own little ones. Now I get to be their doctor, and he was their doctor growing up — their parents’ doctor. Also, former teachers, grandkids, and a lot of my friend’s children, I’m getting to take care of. That is very special, being able to come back to my own community and work.
