Pediatric providers see patients from birth into early adulthood. We make sure children achieve optimal health and stay healthy. Our care includes preventive health checkups required by the American Academy of Pediatrics, and evaluation, care and management of acute and chronic conditions.
We are here for your family
If your child is sick or injured, or struggling emotionally, pick up the phone and call your pediatrician. We are working hard to make sure we can care for your child, while still keeping everyone safe.

There are important reasons to bring your child into the clinic, including:
- Newborn visits after a baby is born.
- Staying up-to-date on immunizations.
- Hearing and vision screenings.
- Monitoring growth, blood pressure, and other vital signs.
- Following up on test results, such as for anemia.
- Checking on developmental milestones.
- Treating infections or injuries.
- Adolescent health concerns, such as menstrual care and depression screening.
If your child has been exposed to COVID-19, or you are concerned about your child's symptoms, call your pediatrician.
Sometimes it's hard to tell how sick your child is. Luckily, a trip to the hospital is usually not needed for a simple cold or cough, mild diarrhea, constipation, temper tantrums, or sleep problems. Call your pediatrician for any concerns you may have about your child's health.
Same-day, next-day, and asymptomatic COVID screening appointments are available for your child. Call to make an appointment at 612-873-6963. You can also reach a live nurse with the same phone number.
If you feel you need to call 911, trust your instincts and call.
Otherwise, it's generally a good idea to check in with your pediatrician first. Sometimes they can help over the phone or will help coordinate other kinds of care for your child without going to the hospital.
