About Us

Our Philosophy

Here at Pediatric Solutions we strive to offer comprehensive pediatric care in a friendly, upbeat atmosphere. We are open to patients of all ages (birth through college age) and work with parents to provide the best care for their children. We have a similar practice style and communicate with each other frequently about all our patients. We follow current American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) practice guidelines and stay up to date on new medical research. Our practice follows the most current recommendations for immunizations published by the CDC and AAP, and we strongly recommend all our patients stay up to date on their vaccinations.

We are available 24 hours a day 365 days a year if you ever need to speak to a pediatrician. In order to accommodate every type of schedule, we offer Saturday hours, evening hours 2 days a week and morning walk-in hours. All phone calls regarding medical questions are answered by us personally. Complimentary consults are available to expecting parents who wish to meet with us prior to choosing a pediatrician.

Not only are we pediatricians, we are parents as well. We know that children often do not follow what a “textbook” says. We work together with you as a team to make sure your child is happy, healthy and thriving. We value your input and look forward to a long prosperous relationship!
