Philosophy of Care:
Our mission at Mendakota Pediatrics is to provide comprehensive pediatric care for infants, children, and adolescents in an intimate, family-focused practice setting. We are an Independent Practice, physician owned and operated. We place the highest possible value on the doctor-patient (and doctor-family) relationship. We understand that families are frustrated by large clinic systems that make it difficult for them to see their own physician. We also believe that families are looking for a "medical home" where the staff knows them well, and where parents can be assured that their children's problems will be watched over by their own personal physician. Dr. Gobel’s special interests include providing primary care for children with congenital heart disease, asthma and other respiratory disorders, and children and adolescents with ADHD.
