We are dedicated to improving the health of Mississippians by delivering compassionate and comprehensive medical services for the children of Central Mississippi. Our goal is to provide your child with continuity of care from birth through early adulthood. This approach includes diagnosing and treating disease, aiding in disease prevention through education and vaccinations, as well as guidance and support.

We also offer convenient scheduling with late hours at our clinics, follow up care for our patients, and have an affiliation with the University of Mississippi Medical Center or needed referrals.

What to expect during your pediatric visit:

Well Child Visits: Please schedule appointments for well-child visits with enough time to get the provider and time that you desire. Because early morning and Thursday evening appointments are in high demand, it is important to schedule your child’s appointment in advance. We like to schedule infants in the morning because of the frequency of their visit and the inability to schedule them in advance. Routine well-child visits with immunization and screening tests are scheduled according to the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

2 weeks to 1 month             2 months       4 months

6 months                               9 months       12 months

15 months                             18 months     2 years

And yearly visits thereafter on or near your child’s birthday.

Sick Visit: We have appointment times in our daily schedule for patients who are acutely ill. We ask that you call and speak with our nursing staff as early as possible so we can schedule your child for the necessary appointment. We make every effort to see your child on the same day. Our staff is also available to answer questions you may have about your child’s acute illness.
