We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Jumaily and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tiffany, what do you attribute your success to?
We want to be able to provide a different kind of doctor’s visit; a satisfying and warm experience. We structured the office as a place where we would want to bring our own children. As a concierge office, we are able to structure our schedule to spend more time with each family. We have time to listen to parents’ concerns, explain treatment options and just be silly with shy kids. We care. And when we care, we provide better medical care to the families who entrust us with their health.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I started out my career in the typical way: medical school and residency training. I joined a private practice, eager to help children become their best selves. I found that there was not much guidance for many of the complaints children were suffering. Issues like frequent headaches, chronic stomachaches, or insomnia had few treatment options. I started to explore factors that could be contributing to these issues: lifestyle factors like diet or stress may play a huge role in these conditions. As I learned more, I knew that I wanted to build a practice that incorporates discussions around these lifestyle issues in depth, and working to optimize lifestyle to help children thrive. It was challenging to leave an established pediatric practice to open something new, but I am so happy to have made this change. At Integrative Pediatrics and Medicine, I am able to provide personalized, well-rounded care to my patients.

I want to dedicate my success to my late grandfather, Dr. Norman Cohen. “Sabba” was a family physician in a small town in Virginia. For most of his career, his office was part of his home. It was not infrequent for a parent to interrupt his dinner with a frantic knock at his home to see their sick child. Sabba never minded – he was a healer to his core. He truly loved his patients, and they loved him. While visiting him as a child, I distinctly remember running into one of his former patients at the grocery store. She ran up to us to say hello, and proudly told me that he delivered her as a baby; and also delivered HER daughter some-30 years later. I knew that THIS was the kind of doctor I wanted to become.
