Important Letter from Dr. Griggs

Dear PAA families,
 
I have had the great privilege of serving you and your families as your pediatrician for a number of years, and for some I was there when you were children as well.  With a sense of happiness and regret I am retiring from practice at the end of June this summer.

I have been with Pediatric Associates since its inception, and have seen our physicians and staff, nursing, lab, front desk and administration, work together to build a cohesive, caring and professional atmosphere that we at PAA can be justly proud to be a part of.  The team at Pediatric Associates is here and will continue to serve you for many years into the future.

I hope and pray that all of you will continue to enjoy good health and happiness.  It has been an immeasurable joy for me to serve you all and I thank you for that.  Thank you for your loyalty and friendship.

Blessings to you all,

Stephen R. Griggs MD
