Featured Portland Top Pediatrician:
Sunset Pediatrics values every mom’s intuition
At her daughter’s first visit to Sunset Pediatrics, Kara Ebbutt of Beaverton says the doctor said something she’s never forgotten. “He said, ‘It’s important that I trust mom’s intuition,’” she recalls.
That attitude is widespread throughout the practice, and among the many reasons Ebbutt says she takes her 8- and 11-year-old kids there and recommends it to friends. “At least four friends have [switched] to Sunset,” she says.
Dr. Margaret McCloskey says the 28-person practice believes that no one knows a child like his or her parents. “When I hear, ‘I have a bad feeling in my gut, something’s wrong,’ I step back and say. ‘Okay, tell me,’” McCloskey says.
McCloskey adds that when choosing any pediatrician, you should ask yourself if they seem knowledgeable. But a pediatrician must also listen to the parent and child, including non-verbal communication such as an infant’s reaction to a tummy poke.
Member Cindee Feliz of Southwest Portland says she appreciates McCloskey’s willingness to recommend specialists to address problems she can’t and says she’s also impressed with the other pediatricians. “They’ve always given me good results,” Feliz says.
