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.
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.
