Who We Are

Pediatric Associates of the Northwest (PANW) was established with one goal in mind: to provide excellent health care for children.

Pediatric Associates opened in 1957 when Dr. John (Jack) L. Stevenson joined Dr. James P. Whittemore in his pediatric practice in Northwest Portland.  In 1962, they opened a second office in Lake Oswego.  In 1964, Dr. Robert A. Mendelson joined the practice. 

More than 50 years later, we are continuing this tradition of excellence serving Portland and its surrounding communities by evolving into a Medical Home.

PANW is your Medical Home which means your child and family are the center of our team!  We work together to coordinate care WITH you. 

We believe that having the expertise of multiple specialties at our fingertips (and yours) helps create that ideal medical home – a place where we are all connected.
