“I’ve had patients come back as adults and bring their children to see me. To me, it’s not only that they trust me, it’s that there are two generations that I’ve had the opportunity to take care of. Occasionally, I have had a grandkid in there.”

—Nancy Daisy Dodd, pediatric physician at Kaiser Permanente
