Margaret S. Alden, MD
Margaret S. Alden, MD, sees that pediatric care is a journey, not just a series of annual checkups or sick-child visits. "I work hard every day to help my families have the best health they can, however I can be a part of their journey," Dr. Alden said. "I especially enjoy working with families that have had NICU babies; watching them grow and defy odds is very inspiring."
Dr. Alden says she is also inspired by her coworkers. "I work in a wonderful practice that is filled with colleagues that I trust and rely on," she said. "I always feel supported in my practice."
Her own two children keep Dr. Alden busy outside of work. "We love to spend time together as a family," she said. "It doesn’t matter if we're shopping at Costco or traveling or spending time at home. As long as we are together, its bound to be fun and silly."
