I have been a practicing pediatrician for over 40 years with the last 29 based in Kansas City. In August of 1987, I established N.W. Pediatric Care as the first bilingual (English & Spanish) pediatric clinic in the Kansas City Northland. Our staff always strives for high quality, efficient, and prompt services to meet your child's medical needs. N.W. Pediatric Care is recognized as a Level 2 Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
