Over his years in practice Dr. Davy has developed his own unique approach to the care of his small patients and their families. The partnership between parents and a child’s physician should be robust and offer parents security and confidence regarding their children’s health. Dr. Davy takes great pleasure in nurturing a trusting relationship with the children in his office with humour and compassion.
It is important to Dr. Davy that every parent knows that they have both the right and the responsibility to ask any questions that they have regarding their child’s developmental and health care needs. Parents often ask ‘What would you do if this were your child?’ Within the structure of the professional relationship, Dr. Davy has always based his recommendations on the premise that he is making decisions as if each patient was his own child.
It is Dr. Davy’s belief that parents know their children best, and this leads him to counsel parents to follow their own intuition. He wants every parent to trust that they know what is in their child’s best interest and to be active partners in their medical care. This is further underlined by his belief that parents should feel free to ask for a second opinion about their child’s treatment at any time they feel this would be helpful.
While routine appointments are by nature shorter, Dr. Davy is very aware that the treatment of some medical concerns requires more time. For this reason he has always provided the option of ‘long appointments’, in order to provide sufficient time to listen as well as advise.
Dr. Davy feels privileged and very grateful to have the opportunity to work closely with parents to ensure the health and well-being of their children.
