All our doctors at Metropolitan Pediatrics are Fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and board certified in pediatrics.  Ongoing education keeps us up to date on the latest developments in the field so that we can provide you with the best possible medical care.


Our practice is moderate in size.  We’re small enough that you’ll soon get to know all of our doctors, as we come to know your family.  But we’re large enough that one of our own doctors is always on call.  We do not use cross-coverage by doctors outside the practice.


We understand that families are looking for doctors who will take the time to listen to them, to give a careful examination during their regular check-ups and see them the same day when they are sick.  You will always be able to call our office and speak directly with our staff during regular hours, or quickly be in touch with one of our doctors nights and weekends in an emergency.  Our doctors have many years of experience, and will help you with any questions you may have concerning medical, developmental, or behavioral issues.  We treat children from birth until they reach the age of 21.
