We are a nurse-managed health center, unlike any other clinic you may have visited. Choosing a healthcare provider for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. You want someone who is caring, knowledgeable, accessible, and willing to take the time to go over all of your options and treat you and your child with respect.
At the Children's Clinic of Richardson, we pride ourselves on our professional, thorough and respectful service. Our knowledgeable and experienced staff is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your child.
Happy Summer! We hope you and your family are having a fun, safe and happy summer.
Flu shots will be here in September or October. Call to schedule your child’s annual flu shot at that time. Also, if you call and schedule early, reserve a flu shot for yourself. We try to make them as affordable as possible.
There are a lot of changes going on at the clinic:
We will close every Friday in July to give our staff a much needed break. We resume Friday appointments on August 1.
We offer extended hours on Mondays, during the summer. Through August, we are open until 7:00 pm on Mondays.
Please welcome Dr Vance Niemann. He is available for ADD evaluations and treatment on Tuesday nights.
Please welcome Cheneil Torbert, CPNP. She will see patients on Mondays and offers after hours well and sick visits. Cheneil comes to us from the Children’s Medical Center emergency room and has a special interest in health and fitness. Cheneil is board certified in both primary and acute care pediatrics.
Please welcome Diane Weiss, CPNP. She will see patients several times a month. Diane also works in the Baylor NICU, and has a special interest in newborn care. She is board certified in both primary and neonatal pediatrics.
Remember, place a couple of drops of alcohol in your child’s ears after swimming. This dries water in the ear canals to prevent painful swimmer’s ear.
Schedule sports physicals early and bring in all needed school forms completely filled out.
Thank you for trusting the Children’s Clinic of Richardson with the care of your children.
The Children’s Clinic of Richardson is proud to be one of a few clinics in north Texas owned by a pediatric nurse practitioner (PNP). Services here are provided by a PNP who is board certified in primary care pediatrics. A PNP is trained to treat and manage all primary care illnesses. In addition, a PNP may refer your child directly to a specialist if needed. Our collaborating physician, Dr Daphne Favroth, is always available for consultation.
The mission of this clinic is to provide quality pediatric care. One of our major goals is to avoid needless emergency room visits. As a member of our health home, you always have someone to call before leaving for an ER.
Our experienced staff strives to make your visit to your health home efficient and productive. You will be treated with respect and dignity. Regular check-ups, close follow-up after acute illnesses and good communication with our staff will reduce your child’s need to access the emergency room for primary care needs.
We are unlike any other clinic you may have previously visited. We take our time and you will leave with a written care plan for your child’s health. We are not part of a larger entity and we are not a recipient of government funding. In addition to standard pediatric services, we offer these benefits:
For the safety of all members of this health home, we provide care only to children whose parents choose to fully immunize their children in accordance with guidelines set by the US Centers for Disease Control.
