Southwest Pediatrics features five pediatricians who provide compassionate and dedicated medical care for children of all ages. We are affiliated with the pediatric experts of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and can draw upon those resources to provide the highest level of medical care possible.
Southwest Pediatrics is dedicated to improving our patients' experience in the clinic and the quality of care they receive using the medical home model. The medical home model is a team-based approach to health care. With this approach, patients receive all medical services from a team that is led by a doctor, physician assistant or nurse practitioner. The goal is to achieve the best health outcomes for each patient, to facilitate family networking and improve access to care. We also have created a parent advisory board to guide practice improvements.
Connected with Children’s
Southwest Pediatrics carries with it the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin name. That means you can take comfort in knowing your child’s doctor is affiliated with one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation. Our pediatricians will connect you directly with the best available doctor if your child ever needs to see a specialist at the main hospital. And best of all, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin specialists will keep your Southwest primary care doctor updated on any tests, diagnoses or treatments.
Visits are by appointment only. Please try to schedule well-child visits and checkups several weeks in advance. We understand sick children may need to be seen immediately and same day appointments are available.
Our clinic staff members are available to answer general questions throughout the day and urgent phone calls are returned promptly by a nurse or physician.
After-hours phone calls are directed to our answering service and are handled by an on-call nurse or physician. For emergencies, please call 9-1-1 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.
We work with many different insurance companies. In most cases, we can file your claim for you.
Children in need of hospitalization may be admitted to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
