Our Mission

Pediatric Professional Associates is a pediatric group practice devoted to the health maintenance and treatment of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults, up to age 21 years. We strive to deliver high quality, personalized care in a nurturing and caring environment. We want to educate our patients and families about preventative health measures and to patiently address concerns when a health problem arises.

Our goal is to ensure that our patients and their families feel secure and comfortable in making this office their medical home.

Practice Background

Our pediatric practice was founded by Dr. Irving Stemerman in 1950. He was one of the first physicians south of Flagler Street to devote himself exclusively to the care and well being of infants, children, and adolescents. He opened his first office on Coral Way and got to know many of the families in the Westchester area. He moved the practice to its present location in 1960 when Baptist Hospital was considered to be on the western fringe of Kendall. The office has remained in this same location since that move and has gradually grown from a one doctor practice to a six doctor group with a nurse practitioner as Kendall rapidly expanded to the south and west.

Our practice offers a full range of pediatric services including prenatal visits, wellness visits from infancy through the college years, same-day appointments for our patients that are ill, all recommended pediatric vaccines, basic lab services using our in-office lab, and diagnosis and medical management for our patients with ADHD symptoms. We are accepting new patients and do our best to meet their needs for a timely first appointment. Our practice strives to deliver highly personalized care and emphasizes continuity by attempting to have patients see their primary doctor in the group whenever possible. Most patients will, however, get to know a second doctor in the group who can see their child when their primary doctor is not in the office.

Our doctors have staff privileges at Baptist Hospital, South Miami Hospital, and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. Our physicians are familiar with most all the pediatric subspecialists in our service area and can assist you with referrals if and when the need arises.

We warmly welcome you to our practice and hope you will always be pleased with the care we provide to your children. If you ever have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to speak with our office manager Christiane Trujillo.
Once again, welcome to PPA.

I am really pleased with this practice. Whenever I feel that my daughter needs to see the doctor I call explain the situation and they guide me in the right direction. They also see sick patients early in the morning without an appointment. My daughter has seen Dr. Kaszovitz and Dr. Miller, which are amazing Doctors. Love love this practice I am really glad my daughter was recommended here

I LOVE this group!! No long waiting times and everyone is so kind and professional. I highly recommend this group to everyone. They answer all my questions with no rush at all and examine my son so well. My son’s pediatrician is Dr. Myers but we’ve met Finer, Ginsburg, and Kuhn. They’re all amazing!
