Everyone at the clinic was professional, caring, and very involved in my child's care. The office was spotless and everything ran smoothly. They are the best care team!
Queremos mucho a Dr. Banuchi por su profesionalismo y amabilidad. En realidad todos los empleados son excelentes.
Absolutely the best childrens pediatrics on the westbank. The staff and Doctors are so friendly and are always attentive and listens to my children. Especially Dr. Riley!!! I've been coming here with my children for almost 2 years now and will never take my kids anywhere else!! BEST PLACE EVER!!!!
It was the most inviting Dr. office I have ever visited. I was overwhelmed with life in general. My Daughter had a rash on her hand and needed shots. I hate shots they scare me. At first no after the Nurse was clear and the Dr was clear this is nothing to be afraid of. Yes my daughter got her shots.I would recommend this office definitely even the lady at the counter was polite and she smiled at me. She had no clue today was a bear...Love em
Everyone is friendly from the time we walk in till the time we leave. They care about each child like as if they was there own child. They always try their best to get you an appointment around your personal needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pediatricians And Nurse Practitioners

What Is A Pediatrician?

Pediatricians are doctors who manage the health of your child, including physical, behavior, and mental health issues. They’re trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.

Pediatricians have an education that gives them special skills to take care of your child’s health. They graduated from medical school and completed a 3-year residency program in pediatrics before working as a pediatrician in a pediatric clinic.

What Does A Pediatrician Do?

They’ll see your child many times from birth to age 2 and once a year from ages 2 to 5 for “well-child visits.” After age 5, your pediatrician will continue to see your child every year for annual checkups (aka well visits). They’re also the first person you should call when your child is sick.

To take care of your child, your pediatrician will:

  • Do physical exams
  • Give your child vaccinations
  • Make sure your child meets milestones in growth, behavior, and skills
  • Diagnose and treat your child’s illnesses, infections, injuries, and other health problems
  • Give you information about your child’s health, safety, nutrition, and fitness needs
  • Answer your questions about your little one’s growth and development
  • Refer you to specialists if they think your child needs expert care.

Does My Child Need A Pediatrician?

Some reasons why your child needs a pediatrician are:

  • They have years of special training in children’s health.
  • They only see children in their practice, so they have a lot of experience in recognizing and treating childhood illnesses.
  • If your child was born early or has a health condition that needs close monitoring, a pediatrician may offer more specialized care.

How Much Education Does A Pediatrician Have?

A pediatrician must first graduate from medical school before going on to specialize in the field of pediatrics. They need to complete four years of college, then four years of medical school, and then three or more years in an accredited residency program for pediatricians.
