Special Announcement

We are sad to announce that Dr. Amy Lief will be leaving Stamford Pediatrics at the end of August as she has found an opportunity closer to her home which will allow her more time with her family. Dr. Lief has been a dedicated member of our physician team for over four years. She is an outstanding clinician and made many contributions to our practice during her tenure with us. Although she will be sorely missed by her patients and everyone at Stamford Pediatrics we wish her only the best in her future endeavors. Click here to read a letter from Dr. Lief.

Direct conversations about their own feelings are sometimes difficult for children, and books can be a useful aid.
