Services

At Children’s Medical Center we provide comprehensive pediatric care in a nurturing and convenient medical home.

Children's Medical Center provides exceptional care to patients from birth to 18 years of age. The practice consists of Board Certified Pediatricians in four offices conveniently located in Palm Harbor, Trinity, and Westchase, and Lutz

We are open 362 days a year including early morning and late evening hours as well as weekend hours. We visit newborns at Mease Countryside Hospital, and the Medical Center at Trinity. We offer same day "sick" appointments and have flexible scheduling for Well Child Checks and Sports Physicals and Preop Physicals. Our physicians are very experienced in handling general pediatric issues including, but not limited to asthma, ADD/ADHD, allergies, common childhood infections, and we welcome special needs patients to our practice. We are more than happy to fill out your school forms, sports forms, immunization records, etc. at no extra charge. We sometimes require a few days notice for this service unless the forms are presented at the time of the visit, in which case we will fill out the forms immediately.

Our offices employ highly trained staff and we have limited laboratory services at each location (Complete blood count, urinalysis, rapid testing for strep, mono, rsv, influenza, pregnancy) and our staff is skilled at venipuncture for studies which need to be sent to an outside lab.

Our patients may contact our offices 24 hours a day to ask questions of our experienced nurses and one of our physicians is always on call for the group.

In keeping with current technology, our offices are "paperless". Each of our patients has an "electronic chart" accessible to our nurses and doctors at all of our locations. We are in the process of implementing online form entry and online billpay.

We encourage you to schedule a complimentary "meet the doctor" visit to learn more about our practice and to visit our facility!

Lactation Center

The experience of breastfeeding is special for many reasons, including bonding with your baby, perfect nutrition only you can provide, cost savings and health benefits for both mother and baby.

Keep in mind that breastfeeding is a learned skill. It requires patience and practice. For some women, the learning stages can be frustrating and uncomfortable. And some situations make breastfeeding even harder, such as babies born early or health problems in the mother.

The good news is that it can get easier, and support for breastfeeding mothers is available at our Trinity, Westchase and Palm Harbor Locations. Our lactation consultants are dedicated breastfeeding advocates who love to help new moms and babies. Click Here to Learn More

Nutrition

Children's Medical Center is proud to announce that we have a Nutritionist, Elizabeth Britt, MS, RD, LD, CLC, on staff.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Britt primarily works out of our Palm Harbor & Westchase locations at this time. We look forward to her expanding to our other locations in the future.

Nutritional Services focus on meeting the nutritional needs of the patient as well as achieving appropriate growth and development. Our Nutritionist will provide nutrition education and counseling for multiple medical conditions and will work directly with patients and their families to develop a nutrition plan that will meet the medical and cultural needs of the family.

Elizabeth "Betsy" will evaluate patients for risk and will provide full assessments, nutrition counseling, education on specific diets, menu analysis and calorie counts, and also evaluate adequacy of development and growth. In addition, she will provide follow-ups with our patients and their families to make sure that the nutrition plan is achieving the goals they have established. Click Here to Learn More
