Pediatrics is our Passion

Welcome to Glacier Pediatrics! Our experienced and caring team, comprised of one pediatrician and three nurse practitioners, have been providing excellent pediatric care for Juneau families since 1999. Our practice is dedicated to providing the best possible health care to each and every one of our patients. We offer many services including newborn care, sports physicals, and behavioral health including ADHD, anxiety, depression and anger issues. We strive to be available when you need us by offering same day sick visits, as well as evening and weekend office hours. We see children from birth through 19, and value the long-term relationships that we form with many of Juneau’s families.
