About the Practice
A family-run practice, Purple Crayon Pediatrics aims to provide a high level of medical care with personal attention in a caring environment. Dr. Sarah Sheldon is the sole practitioner, and her husband Dan Sheldon is the office manager. We strive to provide excellent care for your child, and believe that families are an important part of a successful pediatric health care team. On weekends, holidays and vacations, we share coverage with several other solo pediatricians in neighboring towns.

Meet & Greet: Expecting a new child? Call us to schedule a meet and greet with Dr. Sheldon to visit the practice and see if Dr. Sheldon’s style fits with your needs.
Baby group: Tuesdays from 11 a.m.-noon. For parents and their babies up to 6 months old, this group presents an opportunity to connect with other parents, support each other and share questions and concerns, with the goal of reducing caregiver stress. Moderated by Dr. Sheldon, the meetings also provide an opportunity to ask your pediatrician questions on a regular basis.
