Welcome to Ridgefield Pediatrics Associates!

At Ridgefield Pediatric Associates, we deliver the expert care and personal attention you want for your child’s health, with the conveniences you need for your busy life. Parents have been entrusting their children’s health to us since 1974.

What is so different about Ridgefield Pediatrics Associates? Providers and staff work together as a team, dedicated to delivering exceptional medical care with the personalized attention for which we are so well known.

Our doctors are exceptionally credentialed with extensive and diverse clinical experience, and they remain connected to research as well as alternatives to traditional choices. Regardless of whom you choose for your child, you and your child enjoy an ongoing relationship, while having the comfort of knowing you have the expertise of the entire practice behind your child’s care.

We believe that pediatrics is about treating the whole child, and we extend our hand in helping parents manage their child’s preventative care with education, support, evaluations, physicals and other services that contribute to child development. We also provide a comprehensive approach to managing medical conditions.  

When your child is sick, the last person you or your child wants to see is a stranger. That’s why we offer extended hours staffed by one of our own practioners. In those anxiety-ridden wee hours of the morning, you have access to a 24/7 hotline.

Sometimes personal attention means the need or ease of “on-demand” access to information, which translates to having the latest patient-records technology. Our parents appreciate the patient portal for access to office news, appointments, vaccine records, lab results, as well as communication with their provider through a secure website.

Call us if you want to meet with one of our providers or ask for our Patient Care Coordinator if you want to learn more about our office.
