The reciptionionist/assistant is so wonderful, sweet, friendly, and amazing at her job! I love that the doctor keeps notes on our family, and asks... questions to my son to make sure he is confident and comfortable speaking for himself. I've been coming here 11 years, and have never had a bad experience.read more

I’m so in love with Dr. Sarah Sherman. She really cares about both my daughters and their well being. Besides being our pediatrician, she’s taken on... my oldest daughter for weight control in another program she helps run. We’ve had fantastic results and they even bought her a bike at the end of the program. Sarah and Brittany at that office are awesome!!!read more

In 1986 Dr. Pouw moved to the US to specialize in Pediatrics.  He did his internship at the Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio and finished residency training in Baltimore, Maryland at St. Agnes Hospital, an affiliate of the renowned John Hopkins School of Medicine.  For his subspecialty training in Pediatric Endocrinology, he went to Cornell University Medical Center in New York City where he trained under the internationally recognized Dr. Maria I.New.
