Our Providers

West Vinings Pediatric Group opened its doors in late December 2013.  We are a small, private practice that strives to not only deliver excellent health care, but also to treat every child and family with the attention and respect they deserve.  Our patients and their families are special and we want for them to feel that way. 

Of course, providing our patients with excellent, up-to-date medical care is our highest priority.  Our providers are committed to lifelong learning and are continually pursuing ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest in child health care.  They closely follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics and are also  affiliate members of the professional staff of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.  

But, we also believe that coming to the doctor’s office should be a pleasant experience.   Our office is attractive, modern, and comfortable.   And, our staff is friendly and warm.  We think that you will enjoy the West Vinings experience! 

At West Vinings Pediatric Group, we consider it both a great joy and responsibility to care for children.  We take that responsibility very seriously.  We understand that you have a choice of pediatricians in the greater Atlanta area, and we are honored that you would consider choosing us as your child’s primary medical provider. We are confident that you will be pleased with the quality of care and service that we can provide you and your family.
