Serving the Tacoma Area Since 1986
Union Avenue Pediatrics has been providing top quality health care and supporting your efforts in raising healthy, happy children since 1986. Our philosophy is to meet your needs to the best of our ability. We strive to put as much time and effort into maintaining wellness as all other areas of pediatric care. But should your child become ill, we will be there to meet their needs. All our physicians are board certified in pediatrics. We refer our patients who require hospitalization to Mary Bridge Children's Hospital. We care for our newborns at Tacoma General Hospital and at St. Joseph Hospital.
Our friendly staff includes 7 board-certified doctors, 2 nurse practitioners, and 5 nurses. One of our doctors is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With same day care appointments, flexible hours, and spacious accommodations, we provide a great experience for your child. Want to know more about us? Give us a call at 253-759-3333.
The hallmark of Union Avenue Pediatrics is its Well Child Classes. This comprehensive form of Well Childcare consists of wellness classes combined with the health examination visit. The class discussion covers the areas of language, cognitive development, social skills, emotional growth, nutrition, discipline, sleep habits, parenting skills, sibling-family issues and safety recommendations. Parent participation in the discussion is welcomed and encouraged.
We believe this class can strengthen their abilities as parents. While we cannot make your child smarter, bigger or stronger than their God given potential, we can help make you a better parent with a greater array of coping skills that will help your baby or child better adapt to his or her ever changing world.
Our Neurobehavioral Clinic, which is in an adjacent but separate suite, was designed to meet the needs of the pediatric patient with special needs. We specialize in Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, behavioral disorders, school problems and developmental disorders. Here we also manage complex pediatric problems that require a greater degree of instruction and extensive interaction.
