Edward Bayer, MD
“What is a pediatrician? A medical practitioner specializing in children, treating their diseases, and promoting health. I became a doctor as I was fascinated by the human body. What God created was incredible. What can be accomplished through it is amazing. However, our bodies must be nourished appropriately: physically, emotionally and spiritually.
I became a pediatrician because children are our future. I felt I could make the most impact during this time in preventative health. It is a blessing to get to follow a child’s development from birth to adulthood. I enjoy working with and helping teach parents how to instill healthy habits that their children can carry on into adulthood as preventative strategies for maintaining health.
To be an extension of the Divine Healer is a humbling honor to try to uphold. I always try to follow this philosophy: “I will always treat your child the way I want my children treated.” The doctor/patient relationship is a sacred one. My job is to offer recommendations for you to then decide what is best for your child. I look forward to working with you.”
