Our Mission

Becoming a parent can be a very exciting and satisfying experience, but it is also one of the most challenging task in your life. It is a huge responsibility to hold in your hands child’s well-being, safety, and health. Choosing the right pediatrician is an important decision you will make for your little ones. Here, at Lydig Pediatrics, your children are our first priority. From regular check-ups and immunizations to critical screenings, we look after the health of your kids with a watchful eye. We treat our patients’ individual needs with compassion, while paying close attention to parent's concerns and communicating with families. We are fostering the development of effective and independent parenting by sharing our knowledge and experience based on up-to-date, accurate information and the use of common sense and reason. It is extremely important to us that the parents understand crucial aspects of growth and development, learning problem and behavioral issues, and actively participate in preventive care and management of illnesses. We encourage families to be involved in every step of the child’s health and, at the same time, to respect privacy of the growing. We are working hard to make you feel comfortable and satisfied during your visit and establish our office as a place you and your child would be looking forward to come back. We want to grow with your kids by providing the highest quality pediatric care. We are the place you can bring your child for all of your child's medical needs - Your Child's Medical Home.
