Portland Pediatricians | 7 Specialists to Care For Your Children

When it comes to finding the right pediatrician, there’s a lot to consider. Who’s going to answer your call in the middle of the night when you’re stressed about your child’s rash? Who will provide adequate and thorough answers to all of your little questions? On top of your child’s pediatrician being knowledgeable and trustworthy, you also need to make sure it’s someone your family will love for years to come. Ideally, when you choose a pediatrician, you plan to see them for the next twenty years. That’s a long time and part of why this decision is so major. With so much to ponder, it can start to feel overwhelming. As a family photographer, I get the opportunity to talk to many parents, which means I get some great recommendations. Here are some of the Portland pediatricians my clients have come to love. 

7 Portland Pediatricians to Care for Your Little One

Metropolitan Pediatrics was born out of a clinic started in 1908. That’s over a century of providing Portland parents with quality care! The group has six pediatric locations around Portland with almost forty pediatricians. With so many options, you are guaranteed to find the perfect doctor for your family’s needs. Whether you are looking for a specialist in sports medicine, foster family support, or behavioral health, you’ll find a pediatrician that’s right for your child. Metropolitan Pediatrics believes in inclusive care for every family. On top of their outstanding in-office care, they offer virtual appointments so you can be seen when you need them. 

Broadway Medical Clinic

Broadway Medical Clinic offers excellent care out of its grand building. The pediatrician clinic was started in the Hollywood District of Northeast Portland in 1932. Over time, the practice expanded, but the center always retained the trust the community had come to place in it. While the clinic offers various services, its pediatrics wing is especially great. The clinic provides well-child checks as well as treatment for chronic health illnesses and behavioral issues. Their mission is to offer expert care on an individual level. Your child’s pediatrician will come to feel like an additional family member with their level of attention. The main clinic has an answering service that will answer your questions at any time of the day.
