Children's Care

Taking care of your children’s health is super important, and regular checkups with a pediatrician will help us track their progress. These checkups cover everything from physical growth to emotional well-being and can help us catch potential issues early on. Your pediatrician will also do some basic screening tests to ensure things like vision and hearing are on track and might suggest additional screening for things like autism or ADHD. The bottom line: Be sure to get those annual checkups!

Teen Health Care

The Hope Family Care Center’s pediatric care specialists will help you make sure your teen is growing and developing on schedule. Pediatricians will help you prepare your teens for the physical changes their bodies are going through. It’s also important to track behavior changes in your teen, as they could be normal teenage development or could indicate a larger issue. Your pediatrician may also want to schedule screenings for HIV and the hepatitis C virus. And to keep your teen healthy, encourage them to maintain a healthy weight by eating well and staying active. If you’re concerned about depression in your teen, don’t hesitate to get them screened for it – early intervention can make all the difference.

Nurturing Your Child's Health with Pediatric Services

If you’re a parent on the east side of Kansas City, Hope Family Care Center is here for you.

Our pediatric doctors provide quality care in a casual and friendly environment, from routine check-ups to vaccinations and everything in between.

Wellness Exams

It’s super important to stay on top of your little ones’ wellness exams. These exams are typically scheduled at 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, and so on until they’re 5 years old. These check-ups will make sure their physical and emotional development is on track. This is a great time to bring up any questions or concerns you may have with the pediatrician. They’re here to help, so don’t be afraid to speak up!


Did you know that some serious diseases from long ago can still pose a threat to your little ones? Our pediatric doctors will give your child the necessary shots to protect them from these diseases. Vaccines (shots) work by teaching the immune system how to fight off those nasty illnesses. Before your kiddo heads off to school, hits the playground, or goes on any new adventures, make sure they’re all caught up on their vaccines. It’s important to get all the recommended doses for trusted protection.  

Minor Injuries

Hope Family Care Center is right around the corner from your home in Kansas City on the East side, and we’re just a quick phone call away. If your child is experiencing a minor injury and you’re not sure how to treat it – call us. We’ll tell you if you can treat it at home or if you should come in and have one of our pediatric doctors take a look at it. For sure, call us if:

  • Bleeding has not stopped after 5 to 10 minutes with direct pressure
  • Cuts are deeper or longer than a ½ inch
  • A puncture wound caused by a rusty object
  • There is extreme pain
  • The skin is numb or a body part will not move
  • You see signs of infection.

Contact a pediatrician if your child has not had a tetanus vaccine within the last 5 years.

Adolescent Development

Your teenager (11 to 21 years of age) is transitioning from a child to an adult and has developmental stages unique to this age group. Healthy cognitive, physical, sexual, and psychosocial development is so important to prepare them for adulthood. A pediatrician will help prepare your teenager for what lies ahead, making them less likely to make risky decisions like diving headfirst into alcohol, drugs, tobacco, unprotected sex, and other not-so-smart choices. Pediatric doctors are looking out for your teen’s well-being and will prepare them to take on the world. 

Pediatric Dermatology

Our team of pediatric dermatology specialists (skin doctors) knows all about childhood skin diseases and will provide proper medications and treatments specific to their needs. The skin is the largest organ in the body and one of your child’s first lines of defense against germs and disease. With pediatric dermatology, you can ensure the health and happiness of your child’s skin.

Allergy and Asthma Care

If your child is struggling with allergies or asthma, it’s important to seek the expertise of a dedicated pediatrician.  Pediatric doctors specialize in providing top-notch care for kids with allergies or asthma. Allergies and asthma can greatly impact a child’s quality of life, causing discomfort and limiting their activities. But with the help of a knowledgeable pediatrician, you can ensure your child can thrive and enjoy their childhood to the fullest.

Pediatric Specialist Referrals

Occasionally, a pediatrician will pass the baton to the right expert to meet the needs of a child. A pediatrician is like the quarterback of the team, but occasionally they need to hand over the ball to a specialist who can tackle a specific problem like allergies, heart issues, or even neurology. Through these referrals, children receive the best possible care, tailored to their specific needs. At Hope Family Care Center, we have the connections to make the referrals to the exact pediatric specialist that will be best for you.
