Why the Handprints?

Having been inspired during her time spent in Pediatric Residency, Dr. Allardice affirms the uniqueness of every individual. Asa reminder of this, personal handprints have been an integral part of PAL's decor from the beginning.  Initially painted directly on the walls, we transitioned to custom built canvases decorated every year by families at our annual hand painting party.

No matter how small(or large) each handprint(or footprint) is, your child leaves a lasting impression of how important they are to us at PAL's.  Establishing lifelong relationships is at the heart of what we do.  Watching patients find their handprints through the years is a reminder to them how special THEY are to us!

We love Dr. Lisa and we love the fact that when our child gets sick they get her in the office that same day we call and if they can’t see her that day it’s the very next morning. we are never there for more than an hour they always make sure we are in and out and we love it 😍

-Casey H.

They are genuinely the best! I'm finally too old to go, and they are helping me find a doctor they recommend. There is not one person in this office that isn't kind-hearted. Ms. Carlie especially is the sweetest! If your child is sick, send them here!

-Brooke K.

We absolutely LOVE Dr. Allardice and the entire staff at PALS!! We have never had to wait in the waiting room long and they always get my children in for sick visits usually the same day I call. The office is always clean and we just love them!!!
