AT PARKSIDE, WE'RE HERE FOR LIFE

Great Futures Start
With Small Beginnings

As parents, your greatest responsibility is the care and well-being of your loved ones. Whether you know it or not, if you’re a mom or a dad, grandmother, grandfather, or caregiver, you’re a hero and parenting is your new superpower.

To be successful, you need the loving, caring support of people surrounding you who invest as much in your family as you do.

From our very beginning, we have aspired to be more than an ordinary pediatric practice. We strive to be a partner in the well-being and growth of your family for this generation and generations to come. We’re honored that you would considered inviting us along for your journey.

The acorn – our brand mark – symbolizes the adage that great things come from small beginnings. This guiding principle is a daily reminder to us all that every great future starts as a small seed that, when planted, nourished, and nurtured over time, will become something truly extraordinary.

OUR COMMITMENT

Growing Smaller As
We Grow Bigger

At Parkside, your child will be cared for throughout their life by a dedicated and collaborative, patient-centered team of pediatricians and nurse practitioners who work in tandem with you. This approach provides a unique, multi-dimensional physical and emotional profile that can only be achieved through all members of the team having insight into the life and care of your child.

Our patient-centered approach puts your child and family first. We believe that a dedicated care team is most successful when each member brings their personal experience and expertise to the table. In this way, we grow smaller as we grow bigger. What’s more, our team will work with you to provide support, to train and equip, to lend you a helping hand, and to address any needs that require your taking additional responsibility and ownership of your child’s health, while also providing the support you need to see your child thrive.

We appreciate each and every parent that trusts us with assisting in the care of their children, because at the end of the day, we’re parents, too. Welcome to the family.

The team here at Parkside Pediatrics is constantly learning new and innovative ways to care for your child. Our pediatricians are both certified by the American Board of Pediatricians and recognized by the National Breastfeeding Center. Their expertise in pediatric medicine is one of many aspects that make our care truly unique, and why you can trust us to provide exceptional care.

3. SERVING OTHERS AT HEART

At Parkside, the spirit of caring for – not just treating – others is essential to all that we do. We believe that our approach is a form of ministry that serves and blesses both families and children of all ages. This isn't exclusive to the patients we serve, but is also evident in our dedication to serving the community outside our doors.

PARKSIDE BY DESIGN

An Experience Tailored To Every Member of the Family

The Parkside Experience is tailored for each and every member of the family. New parents will love the calm and inviting atmosphere. The little ones will enjoy the playgrounds at each of our locations. The teenagers and big kids will appreciate that our waiting rooms and examination rooms aren't just filled with teddy bears and trains. Every aspect of our practice has been designed to put you at ease.

At Parkside Pediatrics, we believe that caring for your children goes beyond just treating them, but truly caring for them with the utmost compassion and dedication. Our mission is to care for your child with the same attention to detail, adherence to start-of-the-art medicine, and old-fashioned bedside manner that we would expect for our own children, without compromise.

Heart to Serve

Mission Parkside

Mission Parkside is built on the truth that we are called to love and serve one another as Christ first loved us. Because of this calling, Mission Parkside actively works to engage, equip, and empower orphaned and vulnerable children not only in our own communities, but internationally as well.
