Lauren Allison, MD, FAAP

I am very excited to bring all that I have learned caring for children of all ages in a variety of clinical settings to my practice at Willows Pediatrics.  Whether meeting your infant, child or adolescent for a check up or sick visit, my goal is to provide individualized, compassionate care informed by current research and guidelines.  I hope to form long-term partnerships with families as I work with parents to keep their children well from birth through adolescence.  Being a Connecticut native and growing up in Redding, I especially look forward to connecting to communities that are like home for me.

More Information about Hours

Parents may also schedule consultations most weekdays at 8:15 and 5:30 pm. These visits can be an invaluable time for in-depth discussions of various issues, including school and attention problems and behavioral concerns. This is also when I schedule prenatal visits and consultations with families interested in finding out more about my practice.
