    - Amy Weber, 2020
  • "All three of my boys go here, as well as my step daughter. They are AMAZING! I get responses right away, they know my children the minute we walk in. They are quick but efficient, they listen to you. If you don't like one provider - definitely ask to see another. Sometimes as a parent you just don't click with someone. I have seen every provider there, including Dr. Draker and everyone has been amazing. They hold a flu clinic so you can just go in and get your flu shot for your kids without having to spend a bunch of time there."

Dear Families (Especially Fathers)

Well, it is Father’s Day again, a time when we celebrate the importance and significance of men who are fortunate to have children and the opportunity that they have to ensure their growth, development, and safety.  Ignoring recent events which have demonstrated the fragile vulnerability of children in our society, we, as men, generally endeavor to provide for the well being of all. I know I have mentioned how I miss the presence of the men in my own family, including my father, grandfathers, and uncles. I often reflect on the simpler aspects of fathers, exemplified on Father’s Day. Whereas, Mother’s Day is typified by flowers, candies, breakfast in bed and home-made cards filled with expressions of love and appreciation, Father’s Day typically involves such things as making his favorite dinner or meal, his favorite flavored ice cream, cologne, or snack foods or being in total control of the TV remote.

When I discuss these parental holidays with my young patients, I often try to remind them when they are coming up and give them hints on what their parents might like. This past week, I told the children that their father’s are easy to do something special for. A card, a hug and being told that they love them goes a long way. These past two years have been stressful to all, particularly for children and young adults who continue to demonstrate the results of societal stressors and uncertainties. These special days provide families with an opportunity to celebrate your love for each other and to embrace the importance of our roles and presence in the lives of our children.

The role of a father is universal in nature, regardless of culture or language. Best exemplified by the story “Lion King,” we try to do our best to lead, protect and nurture those who rely on us. In actuality, the importance of men in a society is not dependent upon the fathering a child, but in their assumption to assume the responsibilities inherent in human nature. Men integrate, support, and complement the many roles of women, we strive for a safe and kind society, and we express our strength when the integrity of our social framework is threatened. Remembering these simple priorities based upon love and caring for all can potentially have a significant positive impact on these chaotic and uncertain times.

I am sincerely contrarian in nature, and my glass is always half full. I never fear caring for a child with a serious illness, I confront those who are not good natured in an attempt to engender caring, and I challenge even my worst day when nothing seems to be going right.

Please try to celebrate the beauty and sanctity of life and families, and above all, enjoy your Father’s Day! 

Sincerely,

Dr. Dracker
