St. Clair Pediatrics offers general pediatric services for children from birth to age 18.  We aim to provide the best quality of care and support for you and your children.  Our providers are highly skilled, experienced professionals practicing only pediatrics, and we have an excellent staff of caring, well-trained nurses and office personel.  Our office is open six days a week, including a half-day on Saturday.  Nursing advice is available during office hours, and one of our providers is available by phone 24 hours a day 7 days a week for other urgent questions.  Our office provides the following services:

Newborn Care: Our doctors are on staff at Memorial Hospital and St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and will begin your child’s care within 24 hours of his/her birth at these institutions.  We believe in close monitoring of newborns, especially within the critical first several weeks of life.  Your first several visits will focus on feeding issues (breast or bottle feeding), weight gain, early infant development, and keeping your child healthy.

Well-child Visits/Sports Physicals:  Some of the most important aspects of your children’s care are ensuring their overall health and monitoring their continued development at every stage of life.  At each check-up we discuss not only physical health, but also issues of growth and development, nutrition, safety, and social problems.

Sick Visits:  We understand the urgency involved in dealing with sick children and make every effort to schedule same-day sick appointments.  Our physicians will take the time needed to explain your children’s diagnosis and treatment options.  We believe in the rational use of antibiotics and are aware of the risks associated with their over-use.  Our doctors prescribe antibiotics only when they are indicated and educate parents in situations when they are not needed.

Vaccinations:  We are dedicated to ensuring your children stay protected from all serious vaccine-preventable diseases.  Our office offers many of the newer vaccines as they become available (such as Rotateq, Menactra and Gardasil) and tries to limit the number of shots your children get through the use of combination vaccines (like Pediarix and Proquad).

Laboratory Services:  Our office has the ability to test for a variety of diseases including anemia, lead toxicity, kidney and urinary tract diseases, strep throat, RSV, and influenza.

Electronic Medical Record (EMR):  Our office utilizes an EMR that creates computerized printouts for prescriptions and information sheets for parents.  Everything you receive from our office will be easy to read and pertinent to your children’s care.  With our EMR, our patients’ charts are always in the office and can be accessed by multiple staff members, allowing quicker response times to phone calls and parental questions.
