Welcome to Pediatric Associates Medical Group!
Pediatric Associates was founded over seventy years ago at our current location in Sherman Oaks. Since then, thousands of families have entrusted their children’s healthcare to our experienced and dedicated board-certified pediatricians. We are a small independent pediatric practice committed to providing personalized care for our patients in a warm, welcoming, and family-like setting. As pediatricians, we love getting to know our patients and their families, watching them grow and develop, and guiding them from infancy through adolescence and early adulthood. With the help of our dedicated and caring staff, we provide high quality and accessible health care. We look forward to you joining our family!
We are currently offering telemedicine appointments for some illnesses,
please call our office to schedule a virtual visit.
