Why Choose Children’s Medical Center

All of our pediatricians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and are fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics. They are highly skilled and experienced. Our nurse practitioners are board-certified and have received specialty training in pediatrics.

Our Taft street (Pembroke pines) office is open to our patients seven days a week, including Saturday and Sunday mornings. Our Hollywood office is open Monday through Saturday and the chapel trail is open Monday through Friday. After office hours we have an excellent staff of caring, well-trained nurses that are available to answer any urgent questions. If necessary, the on-call physician will be contacted.

One of the advantages of a children’s medical center is having a group of experienced pediatricians who can consult with each other about children with complex medical problems. This team approach is often utilized when caring for a sick child who presents to our office or has been admitted to the hospital.

We are affiliated with Joe DiMaggio children’s hospital, memorial hospital west, and memorial hospital Miramar. If your child is admitted to the hospital, our pediatricians work closely with the hospitals throughout the hospitalization. We also work with an excellent team of specialists who are affiliated with JDCH if your child needs specialty care.

We always make every effort to see sick children the same day you call. For well visits and physicals, appointments can usually be scheduled within one to two weeks of your call.

From ocular photoscreening to advanced laboratory and radiology services, we offer the quality and convenience of state of the art technology. Results are available within minutes.

At each check-up, we discuss not only physical health but also safety, growth and development, nutrition, and social issues as well. We try to work with families, teachers, school nurses, psychologists, and other ancillary providers to help identify and treat the multitude of challenges facing school-age children.

All of the staff and doctors are awesome.  Dr. Latonya is professional.  She is very authentic, very friendly and also very pretty.  Love to take my teenage boys to the center.  We’ve been there 10 years to present. ♥️ Thank you

Great place! My 10 week old daughter had an eye infection. We called them and got an immediate appointment. We walked in and were seen by a doctor within minutes. The doctor turned out to be the same Doctor who had been my wife’s pediatrician when she was a child. This was our third visit to this location since our baby was born and the staff are always great. I highly recommend this practice.
