Jennifer Marie Bauer, MD, MS


"I love being around kids: the best part of my day is when I make a connection with your child outside of the condition or injury they came for. I know that it is an important step toward working as a team with your entire family to make you as educated, prepared, and comfortable with the treatment plan as possible."
