Stable private and public mixed client base has led to expansion of the practice to a new location with great visibility. Families enjoy seeing independent providers who do not have to consult a hospital practice manager to practice medicine their way. Our office is focused on being a medical home for our patients focusing on preventative care and immunizations in a timely manner and offering same day and walk-in sick visits six days a week and in the evenings. With patients loyally utilizing this model, we have been able to minimize unnecessary emergency room visits and increase the quality of care our patients are receiving. Our family oriented practice utilizes therapy dogs and a child-friendly interface to increase customer satisfaction. Check out our website at www.kids.healthcare and make sure to check facebook @kidshealthcarerocks to get a feeling for our practice.
