At Ephraim McDowell Mercer Pediatrics, we want to partner with you to keep your child healthy. We have two pediatricians and an advanced practice provider on staff. They are committed to providing your child with quality health care.

We provide services to children from the time they are newborns to age 21. Our providers diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries. They also provide routine check-ups that your child needs as he or she grows.

If your child is sick, we will make every effort to see your child in our office that day. Please schedule well-child check-ups a few days in advance. Our goal is to keep your waiting time to a minimum. We also will try to schedule visits around your work schedule if possible.

Services we offer:

  • Well-child visits
  • Newborn visits
  • Sports physicals
  • Treatment of acute and chronic illnesses
  • Treatment of mental health conditions and developmental disorders
