Keeping You Up-to-Date
Kids don’t come with easy-to-understand instruction manuals. This means parents have plenty of questions on… well, everything. From switching to solids and managing fevers to keeping growth charts and tracking appointments, parents want answers regarding the what, when, and how of their child’s health. To keep tabs on it all, you need a healthcare partner committed to helping you better understand the keys to your child’s development.
At East Portland Pediatric Clinic, we work with families to create lasting relationships where the focus always remains on your child’s physical and emotional health. Our board-certified pediatricians encourage parents to take a proactive role in every health care decision by providing the timely information needed to make the most informed choice for your child’s well-being.
Prescribing Preventative Care
Preventive care plays a vital role in helping to protect your child’s development. In addition to allowing our pediatricians to monitor your child’s growth and emotional health, these visits enable our team to develop lasting relationships with the entire family. When kids grow accustomed to seeing the same friendly faces, it makes trips to receive shots, diagnose tummy aches, and treat illnesses far less stressful, especially for younger kids. Earning your child’s trust early on even comes in handy when dealing with teenage patients who don’t listen to anyone without their own TikTok feed.
We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Bright Future guidelines to monitor for and vaccinate to prevent diseases, and screen for hearing and vision difficulties, anemia, developmental delays, autism, depression, and many more common health concerns. By scheduling preventive care visits with our team, we’ll provide you with the information you need to promote optimal physical and emotional development for your kids.
Our Time Meets Your Schedule
Meeting your child’s health care needs means always being available to see them. That’s why we stay open 364 days a year and offer evening appointment hours Monday through Friday. We even reserve a certain number of appointments each day to see patients who develop unexpected or sudden illnesses.
Using the My Kids Charts portal, you can send our pediatricians questions at any time and receive a prompt response during business hours. We offer virtual appointments for many types of visits, so you don’t need to spend your valuable time visiting our office.
Our advice nurses are available to answer any questions you may have about your child’s care whenever our office is open. After hours, one of our pediatricians remains available for any urgent concerns that need addressing. No matter the problem, no matter the question, you can always receive the assistance you need 24 hours a day.
