NEW ALBANY LOCATION:
A Letter from the Founder of Rainbow Pediatrics
To my families, some of whom I have known for two generations and a few for the third generation.
It was with much deliberation that I have driven the decision to combine the two physical facilities into the one at New Albany, where we have the opportunity to expand the space, the hours of availability and the services and make it a model for a private pediatric practice for all to emulate.
Contrary to some misinformation on social media, I am not retiring and, God willing, will be around for many years to do what I love most—seeing babies become toddlers, preschoolers, primaries, pre-adolescents, teenagers, college students, young adults and, maybe later, a new generation.
In two weeks, I will have completed 45 years of practice and I have to say that I am blessed with so many wonderful patients and parents over the years. The families, the children, the religions, the cultures have enriched my life and I hope that I have helped more than a few along the way. I truly believe that the only way we can make progress in this world is to hear and listen to each other with curiosity and understanding, research and open-mindedness. I value and respect each and every one of my patients and families and I thank you for your trust in me over the years.
I hope I have made parenting a little more fun. I trust that I have met your expectations. I know I have remained current on scientific, results-driven recommendations. I have tried to work with the parents in a team approach for the medical care of their child.
I would like to thank the many patients who hail from all over the world. I have had a genuine interest in your countries, your cultures, your religions, your values, your customs. You have taught me a lot. Perhaps, this is why I travel the world, with my insatiable curiosity to learn about your people, as well as the land. Although I feel like I am at the “Academy Awards”, attempting to acknowledge everyone who helped me along the way, I have to recognize my families from India, as I have come to feel like I am part of their families. Please know that this, as well, is true for the Russians, the Macedonians, the Chinese, the Taiwanese, the Japanese, the Koreans, the Southeast Asians, the Europeans, the South Americans, the many Africans, the Hispanics and everyone in this wonderful world.
I hope I have moved, and will continue to move, the needle a little closer to love, tolerance, inclusion, understanding and, of course, better health.
I will be in New Albany for those who wish to check out this wonderful, new and exciting adventure. I welcome you with open arms.
With love and respect and gratitude,
Dr. Ann Marie RogersBoard Certified in Pediatrics, The American Board of Pediatrics
