St. Louis Pediatrics Associates, Inc.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
Since being established in 1980, we have prided ourselves on providing personalized, compassionate, high-quality healthcare for every child that we see.
In our practice we feel it is very important for you to have a direct working relationship with your pediatrician. Each patient has a specific primary care pediatrician (of your own choosing), which allows us to give more individualized and consistent care. Your medical questions are sent directly to your pediatrician’s desk and in most cases your pediatrician or their support nurse will return the call directly to discuss the specific question or concern. We feel that this practice helps to create a collaborative partnership between the parent, the child, and your pediatrician. It is our goal to always be reliable partners with you as your children grow.
The cornerstone of our practice is preventative care. We feel this is essential in allowing us to monitor your child’s growth and development, vital signs, as well as the updating of immunizations. Immunizations are the key to prevention of many childhood diseases facing today’s children. Our well check-ups allow us to see “the whole picture” as it pertains to your child.
Along with general pediatrics we have pediatricians who have interest in sports-related and musculoskeletal injuries, autism spectrum disorder, infectious diseases, childhood immunizations, education issues (including attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities), childhood asthma, dermatology, and rheumatology.
