Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends individuals be under pediatric care up to the age of 21. Pediatricians provide medical care to people ranging in age from newborns to young adults. They are trained to examine, diagnose, and treat children with a wide variety of injuries and illnesses through all of their developmental stages, as they grow and mature.
As a testament to her success, Dr. Mannisto has been the recipient of the Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2014, 2013), and Patients’ Choice Award (2013, 2012, 2009, 2008).
She has been married over 30 years to Glen Mannisto, poet, professor and art critic. They have two adult daughters who get credit for being great teachers in pediatrics. They have no grandchildren yet but have 2 Labrador’s which are like having perpetual toddlers! She enjoys baking, especially trying to master the perfect pie, beading jewelry, reading Scandinavian mysteries, going for walks, and going to their family cottage in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
