About Us

Get to Know the Office

sign At Pediatrics, P.C. we realize the importance of parent and patient participation in healthcare. That is why you will always be treated with dignity and respect by all members of our staff. We may be the medical experts, but you are the expert in what is normal for your child! From the moment you choose us as your child’s pediatrician we will begin to build a trusting relationship that will form the basis of our future interactions with both parent and patient.


We continue to strive to make our office environment welcoming for children of all ages. Because of the important role reading plays in academic achievement, we have chosen to decorate our exam rooms based on authors or genres in literature.

Subjects in the rooms range from the alphabet and picture books to classic early reading and teenage novels.









Our reception area has separate space for well and sick children which is divided by the ever popular fish tank.
Next to the cookie or sticker the kids can choose after the visit, "seeing the fishies" gets the most requests,
especially from those under five years of age.
