“I believe that my role is to listen with an open mind and then to offer the family what western medicine has to help them. I will also listen to non-western medicine ideas and work with the family on incorporating other strategies to help their children. My role as their pediatrician means that I am only one of many people helping to make important decisions about a child’s health and well-being, and I always endeavor to be 100% present during those interactions,” said Pianka of her role as a pediatrician.
Central Maine Pediatrics, part of Central Maine Healthcare, is accepting new patients and can be reached by calling 207-795-5730.
