Bellefonte expands: New pediatrics wing shows growth in Grayson

(Continued)

Sept. 25, 2013 —

Menezes and Sargent agree that working in Grayson is a lot like pediatric care in the past, when care givers had to be more well rounded.

“A family care doctor, although a wonderful trained professional, they might miss something that we are trained to see specifically,” Menezes said. “I have grown a lot as a person and as a doctor by working here, and you can't get that in larger cities.”

Both women aknowlege that many people in the area are in the habit of taking their children out of town for care.

“That's just how it has always been done, you see it in lots of small towns,” Sargent said. “But we have skilled people right here in town who are offering the same high level of care – as soon as people realize we are here.”

To schedule an appointment with Sargent or Menezes, call 474-0669. In addition to regular office hours, Sargent also schedules patients on Saturdays.
