Dr. Dhabia Al-Najjar Joins FMP&S Pediatrics

FMP&S Pediatrics is pleased to welcome Dr. Dhabia Al-Najjar.  Dr. Al-Najjar will join Dr. Kolleen Burnett, Dr. Curt McClellan, Heather Elmore, PNP and Ashley Kramer, DNP in providing health care for newborns to young adults.  

“Children are like little angels.  They are very forgiving, even if they are not happy to come to the doctor, they forgive you.  Seeing the smile on their faces and helping them get better when they are sick, make it all worthwhile,” she expressed.  “I feel raising healthy children is not an easy task. I encourage parents to follow the recommendations for annual checkups and vaccinations and ask lots of questions so we can work together to achieve that goal.”
