Virginia Beach Pediatric Doctors
At Pediatric Affiliates, we understand that you have chosen us to care for your most important treasure – your child. We do not take this trust lightly. We care for your children with all the compassion, dedication and experience we would expect for our own children.
The two things that set us apart from the other “bigger” practices are – One, we are dedicated to teaching our parents about their child’s development or illness. Two, as your providers, we own the practice and therefore we give extra special care to you and your child. Our tagline “Caring for Kids, Educating Parents” sums up our philosophy that education and knowledge will help parents keep their kids healthy, and therefore, you as the parent will know what to expect when your kid is ill. You will always have time to ask questions and we will never make you feel like you are imposing on our time. We will always be there for you and ensure that you get the service you and your child deserve. We appreciate that you are trusting us to be your children’s pediatrician and it is this trust that is the central ingredient to a close doctor-patient relationship.
