PHS Team


When it comes to caring for and treating children and their mothers, our pediatric specialists have a combined experience of over 100 years. With a fully-equipped NICU and advanced neonatal and pediatric emergency treatment, we provide round-the-clock pediatric care. But more than being a board-certified pediatric clinic, our skilled team of pediatric doctors is kind and empathetic to your child’s physical and emotional needs. From the moment a baby is born till a child grows into their adolescent years, we ensure you play the most crucial role on our healthcare team. For each pediatric specialty, we adopt a considerate and multidisciplinary approach that considers what each of our little patients requires.
