In 2009 Dr. Saaloukeh moved to Naples from Pittsburgh PA and started working in the neontatal intensive care at NCH, He developed a working and personal relationship with many of the physicians and nurses that enabled him to provide excellent care to the sick and premature infants. A discussion began in 2015 to build a pediatric practice which would provide expert care to graduate infants of NICU in Southwest Florida. Though he is committed to graduates of the NICU, he will be caring for both general pediatrics and lactation support, including prenatal consultations. As many NICU graduates require medication management, as well as immunization for newborns to 18 years old, Dr. B. Jabbour is a Pharm-D who will provide medication therapy management. Laurel L. Naff, BSN, RN, IBCLC will provide lactation consult with support beginning at 36 weeks GA outpatient to discharge home following birth to 6 weeks of age.
