Changes Happening at Willows Pediatrics

June 9, 2015

To Our Families,

We are writing to share with you two changes that are about to happen in our practice. Just as transitions are an inevitable part of family life, the family that is Willows Pediatrics is soon to experience a transition of our own… Dr. Bartels is retiring as of July 31, 2015 and we will have a new physician joining our practice as of July 1, 2015.

A “Good Bye” to Dr. Isis Bartels…..

As some of you already know, Dr. Bartels will be closing this chapter of her life. After practicing more than 25 years with us, it is a bittersweet moment. While she is moving on, Dr. Bartels wants to express how meaningful and important her work at Willows has been to her, and that it has been a privilege to be included in the life of your children.

and a “Hello” to Dr. Rachel Sheiman…..

We are thrilled to welcome Rachel Sheiman, MD as a full time pediatrician. Having practiced pediatrics for 16 years, Dr. Sheiman brings a wealth of experience to Willows.

Dr. Sheiman received her BA from Cornell University and her Doctor of Medicine degree from the Loyola School of Medicine in Chicago. She completed her residency in pediatrics at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (CCMC/UCONN). She is Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

As a graduate of Trumbull High School, and a long time resident of Fairfield with two young children in local schools, Dr. Sheiman has a strong connection to the Fairfield County community. She is thrilled to be part of the Willows team, and looks forward to continuing our tradition of excellence in pediatric care for infants, children and adolescents.

Please join us in saying a warm farewell to Dr. Bartels and welcoming Dr. Sheiman. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask your physician, PA or nurse.

Yours truly,

Peter Czuczka, MD
Laura Marks, MD
Jeffrey Owens, MD
Jonathan Sollinger, MD
