Welcome to Our Practice
WELCOME TO GLENDALE PEDIATRICS!
Early Spring Update:
It has been a particularly busy illness season this winter/early spring! We are still seeing some influenza, as well as plenty of common respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses, so keep encouraging your child to wash their hands throughout the day! Missing school because of illness is difficult, especially for working parents and older children and teens; however, it's so important for your child to stay home until he or she is fever-free off antipyretics (acetaminophen/ibuprofen) for 24 hours before heading back to school, both for your child's recovery and to prevent the spread of that illness to others. Also, we all need plenty of extra rest to recover from illness prior to heading back to the rigor of the regular work of our day - our children's school time is equivalent to our work time.
We are still seeing plenty of influenza in the community. We still have influenza vaccine available for our 6-month to 3-year old patients!
After-Hours Urgent Questions:
As a courtesy to our patients, the doctors of Glendale Pediatrics take turns being available for you during times after hours and on the weekends to answer urgent questions. We answer many of the common questions and have a lot of fantastic information on this website (including a dosage chart for acetaminophen/ibuprofen/Benadryl! Yay!) here at this link: What To Do When Your Child is Sick.
If your question cannot be answered on our website and you aren't sure what to do, we want you to know that we are available to you to help guide you! Please know these are times when we are getting home after work to care for our own families and to rest before the next work day. If it's a true emergency, please call 911! If your question is urgent and requires a call-back within 20 minutes, press 1. If your question is something that doesn't need an immediate answer and can wait up to 90 minutes for the doctor to call back, press 2. If you are wanting to schedule an appointment or have a question that can wait until the next office day, please call in the morning, and we will take care of you!

We offer "Meet and Greet" sessions one or two evenings a month that give you a chance to come by our office and meet one of our pediatricians, gather some information about becoming a parent, and to get a sense of our office philosophy. Call ahead to make an appointment, as these meetings book up quickly. See you there!
At Glendale Pediatrics, our skilled team of pediatricians offers comprehensive medical care for infants, children and adolescents. Conveniently located in the heart of Glendale, CA, next to Glendale Adventist Medical Center, our helpful staff works hard from first contact to make every visit to our office positive.
Whether it's your child's first visit to our office or just a routine well–child checkup, we strive to make sure you and your child are always comfortable and informed. We take the time to talk with parents to help you understand your child's needs, and we equip you with the knowledge necessary for promoting a lifetime of optimal health and wellness.
To help you get acquainted with our practice, we have provided the important information you need on our website. Please browse these pages to learn more about our doctors, services, office details, commonly asked questions, new patient forms and patient education library.
Our pediatricians in Glendale believe exceptional care is obtained when there is an on–going relationship between the doctor and patient. We want to be lifelong partners in your child's health. We achieve this goal by listening to your questions and concerns, and educating you on how to promote a healthy lifestyle for the entire family.
When you choose Glendale Pediatrics, you can feel confident that you are teaming with knowledgeable, compassionate doctors who have dedicated their careers to child–focused health care. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with questions or concerns. The information on this website does not replace the expertise of a physician.
Our goal is to partner with you.
Our nine Pediatrician Staff have different styles and personalities, but we each share a common philosophy of medicine. Our goal is to partner with you in the care of your child. We strive to take the extra time required to teach you about the different options you have in the care of your child and help guide you through the different stages of your child’s life.
We function as a team.
We see patients from birth through 22 years of age. We function as a team and care for one another’s patients, including visiting and examining newborns in the hospital. For Well Child visits we try to maintain continuity of care for your child with one physician. For Sick Child visits our priority is to see sick children as soon as possible, and you may see one of the other physicians if your regular physician is not available. When calling to schedule your appointment, please know that we schedule our time with you based on your needs. If you have multiple questions or concerns to discuss with the doctor at a well visit, or you have a complicated sick issue, please let us know so we can schedule additional time to best serve you.
Our nurses and staff members are here to support and assist you.
Our office has two waiting rooms, one for well children and one for sick children. During weekday office hours we have nurses whose primary responsibility is to answer your medical questions. The nurses can often help you decide whether or not an appointment is necessary, what your treatment options are, and what symptoms to look for. No one, even experienced parents, should feel embarrassed about asking us questions, no matter how trivial they may seem. Our nurses and staff members are here to support and assist you as we share your child’s journey through the years.
We hope you find you find this website useful. Please contact us at (818) 246-7260 during business hours with any additional questions that this site does not answer.
