Hi! I'm Dr. Pip Spandorfer.

As a pediatrician, I partner with parents to help raise healthy, resilient, well-adjusted kids. We do this together with a little knowledge and a lot of common sense.

For years I’ve sent parents home from each checkup with a list of guidelines to help with their child’s development. After handwriting these lists for years, Pip’s Tips are now available online!

I’ve been a pediatrician for over 20 years. During that time, I’ve helped thousands of families navigate the confusing and sometimes overwhelming world of information we live in.

My goal is to help you do the same!

There’s a lot of information (and misinformation) floating around the internet these days. Rather than debunk all of this, I just want to teach you what I’ve learned over the course of my career.

Watch this short video to learn a little more about me.
