Patient Centered

Medical Home

Patient-centered medical home means that your child—the patient—is the most important person with which we interact. The child (and as an extension thereof, the parent) is our top priority throughout his or her treatment.

You've found your new home for pediatric care.

According to The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents should be accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective. These characteristics define the Medical Home (AAP Policy Statement, 2002).

As such, our practice is the primary resource for any health care needs your child may have. Each member of our team uses evidence–based medical technology in order to administer the highest quality health care available. Moreover, we are available when your child is in need, and we work tirelessly to provide comprehensive care at all times.
