We put the health needs of your child first. It’s important to provide a friendly and non-threatening setting where your child can feel as comfortable as possible. So please don’t be surprised if we greet your child first!
If your child is sick and you are concerned about whether or not your child needs to be seen, please call us first. We will help you decide whether to bring your child in to see the doctor. We offer same-day appointments for sick children. Call (903) 877-7343.
