What Makes Us Unique?

You will always see Dr. Child during your office visit, not a physician assistant or nurse practitioner.

We emphasize the well-being of the whole child, rather than a set of symptoms to be treated. This means that your child’s treatment will consider your child’s history, personality, and sensitivities.

Mission and Guiding Principles

Our Mission is to enhance children’s lives . . . physically, emotionally and socially.
