About Dr. Catherine G Boon MD
Dr. Catherine G Boon has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

One of my children was born with some significant medical needs. Dr. Boon was there with my family to meet his medical needs and keep following up to make sure the rest of the family was psychologically Ok too. Her staff coordinated all the visits to all the specialist and made sure Dr. Boon got the reports from each specialist, so she could stay on top of his overall care. I've always been able to talk to her personally when there has been an emergency situation with any of my children. Much better than any previous pediatrician. Her staff will also allow me to bring all of my kids at once -- typically unheard of, but a real life-saver for me.

Dr. Boon reminds me of your good friend next door. She has such a down to earth, caring nature. My two kids were being cared for by a previous male doctor who I thought was very skilled and knowledgable in the profession but in my opinion, I preferred Dr. Boon because she was a woman and seemed more instinctively nurturing. I was very pleased with her care and she put me an ease immediately. Plus I liked the fact that she isn't so uptight & "professional"
