Richard J. Rosenbaum, MD, FAAP

I believe that the most important work a person will ever do is within the walls of his or her home.  I look forward to helping parents meet this immense responsibility and help keep your children healthy, mentally, physically, and emotionally with preventive and sick care.  I follow guidelines and suggestions from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and also suggestions for care from Denver Children’s Hospital.  I subscribe to three medical journals and a monthly program of UPDATE in Pediatrics from the AAP, to keep my pediatric knowledge base current.  I am proud to have been associated with Littleton Pediatrics for over 20 years, and have full confidence in my associate physicians at Littleton Peds  to cover for me when I am not available.
