Why Choose Riverside Pediatrics?
While you "can't go wrong" in your choice of physician at Riverside Pediatrics, we advise you to select a primary pediatrician to perform physicals and sick visits whenever possible. Our physicians feel that this will enable them to get to know your child well, which allows for more personalized and seamless care. Each pediatrician at Riverside Pediatrics sees fewer than half the number of patients per day, and therefore spends more time face to face with patients, than almost any other local pediatrician. We offer thirty minute well child visits to fully evaluate your child. In every well check our pediatricians will review your child’s overall health, including growth, development, nutrition and safety, and will take time to thoroughly address all of your concerns. We understand that parents have questions and our pediatricians are happy to take the time to address them! Each member of our staff was hand selected to ensure that our patients will always be treated with kindness, compassion and competence.
The pediatricians at Riverside Pediatrics believe that accessibility, understanding and comfort, in addition to knowledge and skill, are the cornerstones for an exceptional pediatric practice. With Riverside Pediatrics After Hours, we offer the area’s most extensive office hours. We also offer helpful patient resources such as filling most prescription medications in the office and selling the most common pediatrician-recommended over-the-counter medications. We draw blood and perform most testing in our office. We even pierce ears! In our Riverside Pediatrics After Hours Clinic, we suture, staple and dermabond wounds. With all of these services, Riverside Pediatrics offers the most comprehensive and convenient care of any pediatrics practice in the area.
