Our pediatric team takes great pride in how we take care of kids. In addition to caring for minor problems, serious illnesses and emergency situations, we offer neonatal care, mental health care, parental counseling and more. Our staff is focused on what's best for children and their health, and we recognize there are many dynamics that contribute to their wellness. We offer comprehensive pediatric care from birth through adolescence, including:
- Child and teen well visits.
- General pediatric visits.
- Sports and activity physicals.
- ADD and ADHD treatment in conjunction with Lakeland Mental Health.
- Inpatient and outpatient care from infancy through the teenage years.
In addition to their role in the pediatric clinic, our pediatricians attend C-sections and high-risk deliveries for immediate care of these babies.
There's great peace of mind in knowing a pediatrician is near you, close by and at the ready when your child needs it. Call us to schedule your well-child visit today and start building one of the most important relationships to your child's success.

A Special Note about Kids & Mental Health
We know that mental health is just as important as our physical health, and we take great care to pay attention to this important aspect of children's wellbeing. Our pediatricians use the PHQ-9 tool, a screening used to diagnosis, monitor and measure the severity of depression in children 12 years and older. Its purpose is not to establish final diagnosis or to monitor depression severity but rather to screen for depression and its symptoms. The screening tool takes a minimal amount of time to complete and the total of all 9 responses from the PHQ-9 are used to predict the presence and severity of depression. Your provider will use the score from the screening tool to determine points of mild, moderate or severe depression symptoms. Similarly, the GAD-7 is a tool to help measure anxiety. You can access both the PHQ-9 and GAD-7 tools at this link. If you're concerned about the mental health of yourself or a child you care for, please feel free to print & fill out this form and bring it along to an appointment with one of our pediatric providers.
