“I have worked hard to learn a lot about medicine, but a parent knows their child far better than I ever will. If we combine these two skill sets, quite often we can figure out what is wrong with a patient and how best to make them feel better.”

When it comes to doing what’s best for her young patients, Dr. Rivers believes in teamwork.
“I will take care of their children the same way I want my own children to be taken care of… I understand that parents are entrusting their children to me, and I think of that as a very special gift.”
Dr. Rivers loves to travel, and she spent time in Peru with her husband and two children to study Spanish. She also enjoys hiking, is an avid reader, and volunteers her time at her children’s school and at her church. She writes a blog that shares her thoughts about and parenting and doctoring at christianpediatricianinsights.com.
