We strive to provide the highest quality medical care while promoting optimal physical, mental and social development. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable using your “parental instincts”, along with our expertise and guidance, during times of health and sickness. We also hope to develop an alliance with you, a special relationship of trust and confidence, as you embark on this challenging and rewarding journey.

Here for some of the services we provide:
Well Child Checkups and Immunizations
We follow the recommendations of the Academy of Pediatrics and Bright Futures for periodic well visits to monitor the growth and development of your child. These visits focus on health, development and anticipatory guidance appropriate for your child’s age. These visits are also our best opportunity to vaccinate your child against common “childhood illnesses”. Visits start in the first week of life and continue through adolescence and into young adulthood.
Same Day Sick Visits
We provide an ample amount of time in our schedule each day to accommodate sick visits.
Many schools require a physician’s clearance in order for your child to participate in a school-sponsored athletic program.
Medical Advice Line
We encourage parents to utilize the link sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics to obtain information regarding their child’s health. This site even has “KidsDoc Symptom Checker” that will help you, the parent, decide if an appointment with Dr. Jones or Dr. Shoptaugh is recommended. Our Medical Advice Staff follow Barton Schmitt protocols and are in direct contact with our physicians.
Drs Jones and Shoptaugh follow children with chronic diseases such as asthma, ADHD, autism, and obesity.
