Expecting?

Congratulations!
Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in your life. Nothing is more rewarding than the privilege of caring for this new life and providing an environment in which both you and your child will thrive and develop. Choosing the pediatrician that can best care for your child is an important decision. At Padonia Pediatrics, we share your joy and enthusiasm and look forward to the opportunity in partnering with you on the exciting journey of raising a child.

Getting Acquainted
Please feel free to call our office if you have additional questions about us. Or, if you prefer, call today to schedule a prenatal, “get acquainted” meeting.

Upon Arrival
When your baby is born at an affiliated hospital, simply tell your obstetrician and the hospital staff that you have chosen Padonia Pediatrics as your child’s pediatrician. Our office will be notified of your baby’s birth by the hospital staff. Upon discharge, please contact our office about scheduling your baby’s first visit to our office.

Our Vaccine Philosophy

We believe that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.

We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child’s next visit.
