NCQA’s Patient-Centered Medical Home program recognizes physician practices that prioritize the strengthening of the physician-patient relationship, coordinate care for patients across multiple settings, and engage in a team approach to improve patient care.
Our practice philosophy is simple: our goal is to provide the highest quality medical care in the context of a personalized, trustworthy relationship between your family and our staff and doctors.
Our board certified pediatricians care for children and adolescents from birth to 21 years of age.
We're committed to being there for your family, with open access same day appointments, our online patient portal, electronic medical records, and nurse triage services for afterhours emergencies.
We're here to share the parenting journey with you by providing a supportive, family-centered medical home.
Hillsborough Pediatric and
Your Child's Medical Home
In order to give your child the best care,
our practice strives to provide a medical home to your child. The American Academy of Pediatrics defines a medical home as primary care that is accessible, comprehensive, continuous, coordinated, family-centered, compassionate and culturally effective.
Our responsibilities as your medical home are to:
- obtain a complete and updated medical history for our patients at their visits
- support open-access scheduling to give you accessible medical care
- coordinate your child's care across multiple medical specialities
- support our families' and patient's self-management of medical challenges.
Please let us have your suggestions to improve your child's medical care!
We now accept Aetna Insurance!
Due to our increasing patient volume,
we ask that all patients make every
effort to arrive at their scheduled
time. If you are more than 5 minutes
late, you may be asked to reschedule. Thank you in advance for helping
our physicians stay on time.

- INFLUENZA VACCINE, "Flu": Influenza is a serious disease that comes every winter and spring; this illness sometimes results in hospitalization or even death. We strongly recommend a yearly flu vaccine for all children older than 6 months of age, adolescents, and young adults. Supplies of vaccine are limited.

food allergy or asthma action plans, or medication administration forms?
We are happy to fill these out for you. Forms are available at your
- FALL BRINGS ALLERGENS:
Avoid allergens by keeping your windows shut year round; taking shoes off
at the door; keeping pets out of children's bedrooms; and washing your
child's hair nightly after he or she plays outdoors.
Talk with your doctor about when to start your child's allergy medication.
- SPORTS SAFETY: remember to keep your child well-hydrated. He or she
should drink 8 oz of water prior to practice or play and drink water or
sports drink every 20 to 30 minutes after.
Remember that CONCUSSION or brain injury can occur with any blow to the head; if your child feels ill in any way after a head injury (even if he/she was not knocked out), please call our office immediately to make a same day appointment for assessment.
- READING: encourage your child to practice reading daily and read books
aloud as a family; this is fun and also supports your child's academic experience.
