Pediatric Services

Trusted Pediatric Care

Your child’s health and wellness are in good hands at Central Valley Medical Center. Our board-certified pediatrician and support staff provide quality care for children from infancy to adulthood and keep you up-to-date on anything you should be aware of as your child grows older.

As part of our commitment to providing your child with the best medical care possible, our compassionate team takes the time to address their mental and emotional needs as well as physical. Children undergo rapid periods of growth in the span of a few short years, and as an experienced pediatrician, our doctor knows how to adjust the way he interacts with patients in order to make them feel comfortable and at ease while receiving care.
