Great Destinations Pediatrics was created through the eyes of a child. Children love adventures. Why not build a medical facility that would take parents and kids on a wonderful journey? Where kids could play and feel comfortable while parents could rest assured that they were getting the finest medical care available.
With the help of our local artist Dee Dee Daus, she transformed our office into a train depot which leads you through Central Park or to a tropical getaway depending on the reason for the patient's visit (separate “well” and “sick” waiting areas). When the whistle blows, kids get on board and travel to a ballpark, an adventure with dinosaurs, and even beneath the sea to search for buried treasure. Every room is a different, delightful destination to entertain, amuse, and expand your child’s imagination. Check out our website to see our photos.
• To work as a team in taking care of our patients.
• To deliver the best medical care possible.
• To make the parent and child's experience as pleasant as possible from the moment they walk in our doors to the moment they leave.
• To treat each and every parent and child with kindness, consideration, and respect. To treat each and every child as if they were our own.
