Dr. Jacqueline Valdes is a Board Certified Pediatrician who has been practicing medicine in Miami, FL for more than 25 years.  She is fully dedicated to her practice and patients, and has seen generations of families throughout her years at TenderCare Pediatrics.

At TenderCare Pediatrics you can expect convenient scheduling, same day appointments, and a safe, clean environment for your child.  Our friendly staff makes it their mission to provide a personable experience for your family.

At TenderCare Pediatrics, we are committed to following the Patient-Centered Medical Home model of care (PCMH). The PCMH method puts patients at the forefront of care, therefore building better relationships between patients and their clinical care team.  We have been recognized by the NCQA and are a Level 3 PCMH.


The medical home encompasses five functions and attributes:

  1. Comprehensive Care – A team of providers who are accountable for your child’s physical and mental health care needs, including prevention and wellness, acute care, and chronic care.
  2. Patient-Centered – A partnership among practitioners, patients, and their families ensures that any decisions made, will respect the patients’ wants, needs, and preferences.  Patients are also provided the  education and support they need to make decisions and participate in their own care.
  3. Coordinated Care – Patients and families receive assistance with referrals, scheduling appointments and guiding them through the intricacies of each health plan as needed.
  4. Accessible Services – Patients have access to many services, including shorter waiting times, “after hours” care, 24/7 electronic or telephone access, and strong communication through health IT innovations.
  5. Committed to Quality and Safety –  Clinicians and staff continuously enhance quality improvement to ensure that their patients and families make informed decisions regarding their health.
