Whether it's handling the urgent problems of acutely sick children or monitoring the development of well children, we strive to provide only the best care for your child. Our practice uses evidence based guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics ( AAP ) and Center for Disease Control ( CDC ) to guide our clinical decision making as well as to determine immunization schedules and preventative health services. Furthermore, our practice is currently in the process of becoming accredited as a primary care medical home (PCMH) practice.

In addition to routine care, our office provides extra services such as asthma treatments, routine lab work, minor suturing, newborn tongue clipping, and minor abscess drainage all within the comfort and convenience of our office. We also work together with schools and counselors to provide a continuity of care for our patients with ADHD. We offer counseling on preventive care, nutrition, and other behavioral concerns. We employ a certified lactation consultant at our Hyde Park office twice weekly. We have a LISW counselor who works out of both offices once a week to participate in the psychological treatment of our patients. And, one of our physicians is board certified in Sports Medicine and can manage most most pediatric sports injuries and musculoskeletal problems. Finally, for first-time parents and new patients, we offer a free consultation to meet with one of our physicians and to answer all your questions about our practice. Nothing matters more than your child.
Our office offers same-day appointments for ill visits as well as routine visits (well checks, sports physicals, pre-op physicals) as availability allows. We also maintain a cancellation wait list in case you would like to come sooner for a routine visit. Furthermore, we are on call for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays - just call our main number at (513) 321-0199 to reach the answering service. They will take a message and contact the on-call physician who will return your call within 15 minutes. Finally, our doctors have hospital privileges at Good Samaritan and Christ Hospitals, so we will round on your newborn at those locations. We're always here for your child.
