Pediatric Health Center

The Pediatric Health Center provides pediatric care to children up to the age of 18. As board certified primary care physicians, our doctors provide the most professional, knowledgeable and up-to-date care to each patient. The physicians are not only trained to be aware of the patient’s medical needs, but their cultural and financial needs as well.

Our services include:

  • Well care visits
  • Urgent care visits
  • Follow-up visits
  • Immunizations and vaccines (including the COVID-19 vaccine)
  • Nurse visits for catch-up immunizations
  • Seasonal flu clinics for our established patients

The office will complete health forms for school and sports during annual physicals. These services are provided by appointment. Referrals are provided for patients who have had current physicals.


Reach Out and Read Program
Saint Peter’s Pediatric Health Center partners with the national Reach Out and Read program to encourage young patients to love reading and learning. Using books and tapes, our pediatric specialists are able to determine and assess the language and development skills of the children they treat. By promoting literacy as a standard part of pediatric primary care, our doctors are treating the whole child, both body and mind.

A variety of insurances are accepted including private insurance, Managed Medicaid, and Medicaid. The office provides referrals to financial services located on-site.
