As we begin a new year, start it off the right way by maintaining the health of your child. Dr. Michele Johnson-Towson and her staff at Pediatric Place of Tampa are dedicated to keeping patients both healthy and educated on changes in children’s health care. They take the time to answer any questions parents may have. They treat your child’s overall health, including immunizations, allergies, asthma, and ADHD (Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder).
