      Dr Larimer was so kind to my son. once she said something about the medicine she was prescribing my son got upset and said he didn't want nasty tasting medicine. so she actually changed the medicine for a chewable allergy medicine. she went that extra mile to listen to my child and try to make him happy.

Dr. Clancy also understands firsthand what it is like to care for a child with a congenital or chronic condition. She enjoys helping parents understand diagnoses and treatment options as well as help them navigate the healthcare system. Family keeps Dr. Clancy running outside of work.
