"I have been a part of the CHKD medical family for almost 30 years. I continue to be proud of the quality of care we provide and consider it my privilege to work with so many fine and capable medical professionals."

Dr. De Triquet's interests have always been in general pediatrics. He enjoys partnering with parents in the care of their children, assisting them with wellness guidance and caring for them when ill. His additional interests are in acute care pediatrics and dermatology.
Dr. De Triquet feels that what makes pediatric care most effective is the desire and the ability of the pediatrician to make every visit a conversation with the parent, engaging them to participate and understand the decisions that are being made regarding their child's medical needs. This provides a level of trust and comfort which directly enhances quality of care. He also places great value on efficiency and timeliness of care and encourages his staff to share this attention to the needs of busy parents in scheduling and in the organization of their daily practice.
