You can take a virtual tour of our new office here. 

Pediatrics for You is very conveniently located in Kennewick, WA (behind Toyota Center, and close to Columbia Center Mall).  It is easily accessible from all over Tri-cities and surrounding towns.  We moved into our new facility in Oct. 2011.

As you drive into the spacious parking lot, kids get excited looking at beautiful and colorful butterfly and inchworm sculptures.  The waiting lobby is spacious and colorful and has two separate waiting areas and a separate kid’s play room.  Sometimes it is difficult to get the kids out of the playroom after 10-15 minutes, our typical wait times.

The exam rooms are spacious and well-lighted with lot of natural light. We have dedicated colorful and engaging weighing stations to keep the kids occupied as they get weighed and measured.  We try our best to keep your visit pleasant and productive.
