Meet Dr. Audrey Rogers
Dr. Rogers father was a physician, as well as her father-in-law, but what attracted her to pediatrics was that childhood illnesses are often not their fault. In pediatrics you get to care for patients who did not make choices that led to being sick.
She cites ADD and ADHD as two conditions with which she has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share.
"Giving direction has to come from someone who has experience and authority," she says. And it's easier when that person is a physician versus a family member. And you have to be a good listener who is willing to ask a lot of probing questions."
Dr. Rogers is passionate about her patients, their families and most things in life. She remembers early in high school one of her best friend's fathers said to her, "You'd make a really good doctor."
Those who know her, or are patients, often remark what a wonderfully upbeat and cheerful presence she is in their lives.
