Welcome to WFPG!

To Patients and Families of Willamette Falls Pediatric Group:

You may have noticed some significant changes at our clinics, and it seemed good to pause a moment to give you an update on what’s up at WFPG!

First off, please join us in welcoming Drs. Lisa Badon and Jennifer Shepard who have joined the practice. Dr. Badon hails form Louisiana and has been with us since the spring of this year. Dr. Shepard is a graduate of Doernbecher/OHSU and is a local. Both doctors enjoy seeing children of all ages and are accepting new patients. Aneta Kucharczych-Swamy is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner who joined us in February of 2014. She has a background in neonatal intensive care medicine and specializes in lactation or breastfeeding support.

In addition to new providers, WFPG has earned designation as a Patient-Centered Primary Care Medical Home. A large part of the National Healthcare Transition you've been hearing about is creating a patient-centered experience as  your clinic becomes your healthcare "home." That 'home" includes medical, as well as behavioral and social needs. What hasn't changed is our continued striving to work as a team to keep your child and family as healthy as possible.

In this spirit of transition, as I commit more time to family, and the operational aspects of taking WFPG through this transition, I will no longer be providing medical care to patients. You will, however, continue to see me around the clinic. Please stop and say hello!
We are also committed to tracking our progress, and you may be asked to complete a brief survey to let us know how we are doing. The changes to healthcare are necessary and can lead to better health for all. As you would expect, WFPG is embracing that change.

In conclusion, we appreciate your patience as we move toward this patient-centered and holistic care model. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child's healthcare team and part of your family.
