Promoting Wellness Starts with Prevention
Stay Healthy, Stay Strong
A vital part of pediatric wellness is preventing illnesses that can be avoided. In keeping with our evidence-based approach to medical care, all providers at Pediatric Associates of the Northwest believe in the importance of vaccines and strongly recommend patients stay up-to-date on their immunizations.
Yet we also recognize that every family is unique. If you have concerns about the safety or efficacy of vaccines, or if your child gets nervous with shots, we are committed to listening and providing ample resources to encourage informed decisions.
Our Gentle Approach
We offer pain-reducing methods and distraction techniques so “pokes” are as comfortable and easy as possible. Ask about our Buzzy Bees, Shot Blockers, topical anesthetic creams, and Viewfinders at your next visit!
Our gentle and patient staff are specially trained in giving pediatric immunizations so you can feel confident that you are in good hands.
