Pediatricians

Keeping children healthy

Patients-choice-1.jpgOur five-member pediatrics team combines decades of experience with the compassion needed to connect with the youngest of patients, from days-old infants to high school seniors.

The pediatrics team — four pediatricians and a pediatric nurse practitioner — definitely know how to deal with colds, cough and flu, along with minor injuries. Our pediatricians are also great about finding the hard-to-see issues.

“Being a child is difficult, there are so many health and everyday life issues to deal with,” said Dr. Sarah Woerner, a longtime pediatrician in the community. “We want to make it as easy as possible for parents to get the health care their children need, in a comfortable and friendly environment.”

In fact, Western Sierra recently opened a Kidz Korner in the waiting room, complete with child-size chairs and a table, floor toys and even wall games.

Whether it’s an annual checkup – which often include immunizations for younger children — or a serious health issue, Western Sierra’s pediatrics team is ready.
