Pediatrics Therapy
At Optimal Pediatrics, we offer Pediatric Physical, Occupational, and Speech-Language therapy services all under one roof. Our philosophy of patient-centered, family friendly, expert care means that your child will receive a customized plan tailored specifically to both their individual and family goals. Their journey to reach age/developmentally appropriate skills will be guided by our therapists who specialize in pediatrics and who develop deep and meaningful relationships with the patient, families, and other caregivers. Consistency and continuity of care is critical, so at Optimal Pediatrics we take that into consideration during scheduling and when developing your child's plan of care. We adapt and modify plans, treatments, and scheduling as needed because we understand that individual and family needs change from time to time based on growth and development, school and work schedules, insurance issues, other activities, and other medical appointments. We also strive to provide a fun and comfortable environment for children who might be anxious about therapy due to previous medical appointments and procedures. Your child is at the center of our practice, and we’re excited to begin working with them!
