Boutique medical care for children with a modern approach.
During the COVID19 Health Crisis we are offering a Virtual Peapod Membership to facilitate care for children. Select Virtual Visits may be provided to offset the burden to emergency room facilities. You may register online directly and we will contact you with more details. Some features of our practice include:
- Leading edge medical communication with providers and staff via text, email, video visits and phone.
- Parents invited to download the Spruce App and must have an active Annual or Virtual Peapod Membership for use.
Springboard Pediatric Supplements from Ortho Molecular Products is now exclusively available online to Peapod Members. Our goal is to provide supplements safe and securely by eliminating third-party distributors, which can expose children to product contamination, tampering and variable dosing.
- Petite Pediatrics Acute Care Pod: An Airstream Basecamp trailer has been set-up as our Acute Care Unit for children.
- Petite Pediatrics Car Visit: A select parking space has been designated for drive-up testing / car visits.
Childhood and Community Health:
Petite Pediatrics supports and requires childhood immunizations for our patients. This protects them against vaccine preventable illnesses and protects vulnerable populations such as infants and those who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons.
Peapod Membership Program
The Peapod Membership Program is a concierge medicine program offered by Petite Pediatrics. It is a per family annual fee for non-medical services related to patients overall care. The Program is designed to help maintain the personalized level of service that is the hallmark of Petite Pediatrics and assures a high-quality, patient-centered medical home.
Asthma and your child
Asthma affects children in different ways. Some children have only occasional asthma attacks. Others have many asthma attacks that send them to the doctor often. If your child has asthma, the first thing to know is that treatment can control it.
Things to Know This Flu Season
The flu is caused by several influenza viruses (which are not the same as the virus that causes COVID-19). Most flu outbreaks happen in late fall and winter. Getting a flu shot in the autumn can help prevent the virus for the entire flu season.
What To Expect During Your Child’s Well-Child Visit
Just as adults need to see their physician at least once a year for a wellness visit, so do children. You wouldn’t hesitate to take them if they are sick, but it’s just as beneficial to take them when they are not.
