Friendly Staff

Newport Children's Medical Group Staff with 7 Dwarves Plushies

Pediatric care specialists, Physician assistants, LVN  and medical assistants have a very complex role and specialize in caring for newborns, childrens and adolescents.

They assist physicians and are responsible for the initial picture your children will see when visiting the doctor’s office. A happy friendly face helps to put your children at ease.

The care providers with Newport Children’s Medical Group have over 50 years collective experience in pediatric care in both In Patient and Outpatient settings. Our care providers strive to establish relationships of trust with our young patients and their parents in an environment that often involves frightening and sometimes painful situations. Every encounter with a new patient consists of a challenge to gain confidence and cooperation.

They work hard to address parents’ concerns about their children being treated and regarded as an individual reflecting the value parents place on continuity of care.
