Keeping Children Happy & Healthy
at Kids Central Pediatrics!

An innovative pediatric practice that cares for families one child at a time.

Kids Central Pediatrics, happy kids, pediatrician near me

Children rarely enjoy a visit to the doctor, but that is not the case at Kids Central Pediatrics, where we provide a unique approach to pediatric care.

Our founding physician, Dr. James, grew up in the countryside, where every child was cared for by the same doctor. He envisioned an innovative pediatric office that is a fun, energetic, caring environment where children are comfortable and excited to visit – a place where even the most anxious child feels at home while receiving state-of-the-art quality care.

Kids Central Pediatrics takes an evidence-based approach and emphasizes the family first. We work closely with parents and guardians to help them understand the latest findings in pediatric medicine. Our providers know every patient and their health history to provide the best pediatric care possible. We look forward to your visit!
