Fuoco group is proud to announce that our latest client in the spotlight is the award-winning pediatrician of Jupiter and the Palm Beaches, Ivy Faske, MD.
According to experts the most important things to consider when choosing a pediatrician are: credentials, experience, current best practices, confidence in their philosophy of care, and how your doctor interacts with your child or newborn. Dr. Ivy Faske has it all, as well as a special superpower: “…..the ability to keep the parents calm as well as the child.”
In fact, it was a “cool, calm, and collected” pediatrician that inspired Ivy to take the leap into medicine. As a little girl, she was fascinated by what the doctor was doing and why. As a new medical student at the University of South Florida, Ivy was hooked on pediatrics the day she worked with a pediatrician who was able to calm a child in order to examine them, and then cared for them with compassion and cured them with skill. That was in 1982!
Fast forward to current times and Dr. Faske has been in private practice in Palm Beach Gardens for more than 33 years. Dr. Faske is a Fellow of The American Academy of Pediatrics. She served for 6 years as Chief of Pediatrics for the Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, and was a past president of the Palm Beach Pediatric Society.
It is her devotion to her patients, and the desire to share the skills she developed over the years, that was her inspiration to write her book, “They Do Come With Instructions!” It chronicles years of diagnosis and observations about the physiology, care and development of newborns to young children. It features photos of Dr. Faske’s patients throughout the years so that you can easily identify newborn rashes, sore and strep throats, chicken pox, conjunctivitis, fifth disease, eczema, hives, poison ivy, ringworm, and so much more. It also includes vaccine information sheets for all routine childhood vaccines.
Florida born and raised, Dr. Faske is originally from Miami. She now calls Palm Beach Gardens home. Giving back to the healthcare community in which she works and lives has always been a priority for Dr. Faske. Over the years she has served as President of the Palm Beach County Medical Society, and currently is President of the PBCMS Services, which is the charitable arm of the Society. Dr. Faske was the Chair of the Women Physicians section of PBCMS, and won the Women in Medicine Leadership Award in 2008. In 2015, the PBCMS presented her with its Humanitarian Award during the Heroes in Medicine Celebration. Dr. Faske was the recipient of the Society’s coveted Excellence in Medicine Award in 2019.
Dr. Faske has been voted by her peers as a “Top Doctor” in Palm Beach County almost every year since 1998. In 2020, the readers of the Palm Beach Post and community at large voted her the “Best Pediatrician” in Palm Beach County. What continues to inspire this award winning pediatrician and leader in the medical community? In Dr. Faske’s own words: “I love seeing children develop through the years, and hope that by having good experiences at the doctor while they are young, they will continue to seek proper care as an adult.”
