The pediatricians and staff of Next Door Pediatrics are dedicated to making your child's development and medical care our priority. We look forward to providing your children with outstanding medical care that you can trust.
Connected with Children’s
Next Door 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 Next Door primary care doctor updated on any tests, diagnoses or treatments.
Flu shots now available
It’s important to get vaccinated as children can get seriously sick from the flu, and so can their family members. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that everyone age 6 months or older should be vaccinated against the flu each year. This year, the CDC recommends against the nasal flu vaccine because it hasn’t been effective in the past, so only flu shots will be available.
For current Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin primary care patient families, you can now schedule your child’s flu vaccine online through MyChart. Don’t have a MyChart account? Visit chw.org/mychart to create an account. Current patient families and new patient families can also schedule an appointment by calling Next Door Pediatrics at (414) 264-5338.
Remember, it can take up to two weeks to develop full immunity, so schedule your appointment as soon as possible!
