Are You Expecting?

We encourage prenatal visits! Getting early care for Moms and their little one(s) is essential, especially having to spot problems and being able to treat them early. At Kent Pediatrics, we welcome all expecting parents! We call this consultation a “Meet and Greet.”

On the day of your visit, you will get a chance to:

  • Have a one-on-one patient education with one of our dedicated doctors
  • Ask any related questions
  • Get to know our staff
  • Take a tour of our facility

If you are looking for compassionate and committed health care for you and your little one, we’re just a phone call away!
