Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Whole Child Pediatrics website. This practice was established to be your child’s Medical Home which is dedicated to your child’s health care needs. Our goal is to provide families excellent access to compassionate, culturally sensitive, high quality and comprehensive care. We offer preventive or wellness check up, immunizations, sports physicals, management of acute illnesses or chronic conditions, behavior evaluation, nutritional counseling and weight management, among others.

In order to maintain continuity of care and reduce emergency room visits, we offer flexible scheduling and enhanced access to our medical home either by telephone, portal/email and through our website. We take care of the whole child, not just one problem of a child. We therefore encourage patients and their families to actively participate in making decisions regarding medical treatment and management based on the current recommended standard of care. We believe that better outcome and improved health can be achieved when the patient and family work together in partnership to develop a care plan.

Our mission is to be the Primary Medical Home to everyone. We invite you to be part of our Medical Home.

Healthy Foods for Busy Families

Our society is beginning to recognize the impact of obesity on long-term medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and and heart disease. As pediatricians, we recognize that healthy eating habits established during childhood can carry on until adulthood. In this page, we would like to offer parents (and children) menu planning strategies to offer nutritious, well balanced and delicious food that can be prepared by even the busiest families.
