Welcome! Thank you for choosing Shannon Clinic Pediatrics for your child’s medical care. We provide care from the first day of life until the end of the teenage years. Choosing a pediatric provider is an important decision for your family, so we thought we might share a bit about our pediatric team.

Our pediatric team includes clinicians trained in all phases of pediatric care including well-child care, immunizations, infectious diseases, respiratory diseases and neurological problems. We are trained in sports medicine, as well as school problems such as ADHD. We are here to help, so call us if there is any question we might answer about your child’s health or development.

And I have been blessed to also have a son to play with all the fun boy things like Legos and baseball.”
