We are sad to announce the office of Ideal Pediatrics will be closing permanently on October 28, 2022. We have tried to find a way to transition the practice to new ownership, but have been unsuccessful. While that possibility still exists, we wanted to update you as soon as possible 


Please know we will do everything in our power to make this a smooth transition for your family.
