Welcome to Our Practice
We are an innovative and unique pediatric concierge practice, providing personalized care in the comfort of your home. We draw on the values of old fashioned medicine - in the time of house calls and small town doctors, and before the days of complicated phone triage systems. We then bring those values to the busy modern family who does not have unlimited time to sit in crowded waiting rooms for a 15 minute visit that, at times, can feel rushed and inadequate. We offer a variety of services, including direct primary care, vaccinations, well visits, physicals at home, in home pediatric urgent care, and more!

Vaccines: At Personal Pediatrics, your child’s health and safety is our priority. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended vaccine schedule and will bring any scheduled vaccines to your home for your child’s well visit. If you have questions or concerns about any of the vaccines, please contact us prior to the visit so that we can plan accordingly.
By limiting the size of our practice to a minute fraction of the panel that most pediatricians manage, we get to know you and your children personally, which ultimately results in better care. You will be able to call or text us directly anytime of day or night, because children don’t often get sick on schedule. And when you do call or schedule a visit, we are able to devote close, thorough and timely attention to any issue at hand.
We are both board certified pediatricians with a combined experience of more than 30 years between us. Just as importantly, we each have our own busy families so we understand the ups and downs of parenthood and the worry, joy and frustration that often goes along with it. We too place a premium on quality and convenience in managing our own families and we hope to bring that same quality and convenience to the health of your children!
By doing check ups and urgent care visits in the comfort of your home, we can better assess the development of young children in their natural environments and we can decrease the fear that is often associated with the doctor’s office. Our practice is a direct patient care model in which you pay a yearly membership fee that ensures direct access to your doctor and high quality thorough care that works around your schedule. We do not bill insurance companies. They still play an important but secondary role, helping to cover associated costs such as lab work or imaging, specialist care and emergency room visits or hospital stays when necessary. By remaining out of network, we at Personal Pediatrics can collaborate with you to make important decisions about your child’s health without interference from insurers. As a result, the quality of care is unsurpassed.
