Jennifer B. Warton, D.O.: Best Pediatrician
Pediatrician’s love for kids shines through
Outside of Mom and Dad, no one’s more important to your child’s overall health than your pediatrician. A trusted doc- tor can make all the difference. But it’s more than trust. It’s about establishing both a professional and personal relation- ship that works for everyone involved.
Dr. Jennifer Warton, a hometown graduate of Bend High School, loves taking care of kids – a main reason why she chose pediatrics as her specialty. “The wonderful thing about pediatrics is that kids are super resilient, mostly healthy, and even when sick, it doesn’t take much to get them back on course,” says Dr. Warton. “We love partnering with parents to come up with the best treatment plans for our patients and to help foster them into healthy young adults.”
After completing med school in Chicago and her pediatric residency at Oregon Health and Science University, Dr. Warton returned to Bend in 2010.
She takes great pride in having clear and open communication with parents. “We have a tight-knit group of nurses and staff who get to know our families well,” she says. “It makes it so much easier to take great care of kids when your whole team is caring, compassionate and working toward the same goal.”
Dr. Warton’s office staff makes it a point to be available when parents and kids need them. They recently expanded to later hours on weekdays and added a clinic on Saturday. In addition, the office currently houses and runs the only Type 1 diabetes multidisciplinary pediatric clinic in Central Oregon.
Ultimately, though, it goes back to trust and relationships. “We are a smaller office,” she says. “And we feel that continuity of care is better patient care.”
