"Every time I interact with a family in the clinic or hospital, I feel that I’m part of something sacred. Clinically, I love seeing children get well — if not healed completely, then at least leaving the hospital healthier and happier. I love the first time I see a child’s smile come back. In my research work, I help guide a program for overweight youth and their families. In focus groups, I talk to parents of children who are finishing the program, and it is so gratifying to hear from them how the program has made a difference in their child’s life."

    Mollie Grow is a great doctor. She just knows how to get down to a child's level and understand what they are going through. Several years ago, my son developed a huge bump on his head from falling down and I was so worried about him. Dr. Grow checked him all out and then made this pronouncement, "Official diagnosis - Goose Egg! He'll be just fine." Not only was I relieved, but her humorous bedside manner put me at ease and made me laugh. Thus proving, humor really is the best medicine.
