A Letter From Dr. Lepore
In our office, we offer much more than “just a cleaning” and it’s because of my son. Near the end of 2018, my son had been in and out of doctor’s offices for upper respiratory infections and received nebulizer treatments (similar to an inhaler) on a regular basis. After watching him continue to struggle, I got tired of hearing how “common” it was for a young kid to be sick so often. “Just treat the symptoms and he’ll grow out of it”, they said. What I quickly realized was just because it’s common, doesn’t mean it’s normal. And so started my journey into preventive care. I wanted to get to the root cause. Why was my son getting sick so frequently?
After a slew of doctors who couldn’t give me answers, I searched for individual specialists on my own and eventually gathered a group eager to treat the cause and not just the problem. After working with this interdisciplinary team, my son rarely gets sick and hasn’t used the nebulizer in months. I knew I had to take this approach back to my office to provide my patients this method of care.
