What is a Pediatrician and why do you need one for your child?

Where your children's health comes first.

A Pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in taking care of children.

​A specially trained physician, each pediatrician must go through three years of closely supervised, in-depth training in ALL aspects of how children grow, develop and put gray hairs on our heads.

No other physician comes close to this kind of training. Not only are we trained extensively in childhood illnesses, but even more detailed training is given to Pediatricians to study all aspects of NORMAL child development and behavior. Pediatricians do extensive evaluations, not only of any illnesses but, more importantly, evaluate the child as a real person and part of a family. At the Children's Health Place we screen children for developmental concerns, autism, speech, etc. All the children in our practice get a comprehensive look every time they come to visit.


Every Child Needs a Pediatrician

Some people mistakenly think Pediatricians are needed only for children that have bad diseases. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The vast majority of what we do has to do with NORMAL children and teaching parents about how children are very different at different ages.

A Pediatrician provides anticipatory guidance, which is critical to helping young parents understand their children and to have sensible, effective strategies to deal with the many child rearing challenges we all face.

Don’t you want an experienced, highly trained Kid Coach to help guide you?

No one can provide you and your child the high level of expertise that comes only from an extensively trained Pediatrician.

Why not take advantage of this expertise and coaching available in Greeley? Always go for the best available, especially since it costs you nothing more.

I really enjoy meeting prospective parents.

It is such a nice idea, whether your pregnancy has gone well or with issues, to meet your Pediatrician before having the baby.

I call this a “Meet the Ped” (Pronounced “PEED”—cute nickname for Pediatricians) FREE visit. This free visit gives you a chance to get acquainted with the office, and see how you like us before any commitments.

We love to start parents off on the right foot from day 1 of birth.

Encourage your expecting friends to call The Children’s Health Place BEFORE their due date to enjoy a FREE visit.

Check us out. You won’t be disappointed.
