** Important Message from Dr. Whitney Sprinkle **

After 15 years of working with the team and families of Preferred Pediatrics, I have made the difficult decision to retire from clinical medicine.  It has been an honor and privilege to have been a part of your lives.  Together we have navigated life with periods of joy, sadness, fear and triumph and I will never forget any of those journeys.  I am truly grateful for everything you have shared with me.  I will miss each of you more than I can put into words.

I know that you will be in good hands with the clinical team of Preferred Pediatrics.  My last day in the office will be August 29, 2019.  If there is any way that we can help facilitate the transition to another provider, please let us know.

~ Dr. Whitney Sprinkle
