Silen Pahlavan MD, FAAP
“I love seeing kids happy and healthy. I believe pediatrics is a partnership between the patient, the family, and the physician. I want my families to trust me and to know that I will treat their child as if they were my own. The most satisfying part of my job is seeing babies grow into beautiful young people. ”
