  • Comfort... in a warm, attractive atmosphere where you and your child will feel comfortable.
  • Understanding... through open and direct communication with our experienced staff, who take the time to help you understand your children’s health, development, behavior and illness.
  • Convenience... through our location, office hours, accessible parking, and nearby pharmacy, X-ray and laboratory.

Among the best pediatricians in the nation, our providers obtained their degrees from top schools and training programs in the country. They share a passion for caring for patients and have dedicated their careers to treating children. In fact, our providers are proud to be consistently voted by their peers as “Top Docs” in Phoenix Magazine multiple times over many years.

We love our families, and we even provide services for parents before your baby is born! Once you’re expecting, we encourage you to schedule a prenatal visit and tour our office. We can provide you with hospital and delivery information as well as recommended readings to help you prepare for your special delivery. Once your baby arrives, if you are struggling with breastfeeding, Dr. Caplan, an official lactation consultant, can help! And of course we are experts at newborn care.

We know that choosing the right pediatric practice is an important decision, and we appreciate your confidence in us. Welcome to our practice!

Talking to Children About Violence

Written by Dr. Sarah Wiersma

After all the recent tragedies in the news, it’s important for parents to know the best way to discuss violence with their children. Many children can tell that something is upsetting the adults in their lives and school age children may have seen something from the media or heard about events from friends.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that adults filter information about a crisis and present it in a way that a child can manage. A good way to start the conversation is to ask what they’ve heard and what questions they have. Keeping the discussion straightforward and direct while sparing the graphic details is best. Also, try to keep children away from graphic imagery and sound clips displayed by various media sources. With older children, you may want to preview the news program ahead of time and then watch it together with them.

A great message to share with kids comes from Fred Rogers: “You will always find people who are helping. To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.”

Watch for signs that a child isn’t coping well with the tragedy:
- Difficulty sleeping or nightmares
- Physical symptoms like headaches  or tummy pain
- Behavior changes like regression in younger kids or partaking in high risk activities in teens
- Signs of anxiety or depression
