As a pediatric facility, all staff have specialized pediatric training to provide the best care for your child. We also have shorter wait times then the emergency room and are less expensive.

Yes. A summary of your visit is faxed to your primary care physician’s office immediately after your visit.

We view our relationship with your primary provider as a partnership to provide the best care for your child.

Can I get advice over the phone?

We are unable to provide medical advice over the phone unless your child has been seen by our clinic. If your child has been seen by our clinic, we are more than happy to answer any follow-up questions or provide any information pertaining to your recent visit. In addition, most pediatrician offices have a phone triage line to provide parents after-hours advice.
