Family-focused care in Lake Bluff, Lindenhurst, and Vernon Hills

Health for Kids. Help for Parents.

We’re here when you need us – 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

Choosing a pediatrician for your family is one of the most important decisions you will make in your child’s life. We will be involved with your family at some of your most joyful times as well as some of your most difficult times. We will see you when you’ve just had a baby, when your toddler conquers potty training, when you’ve been up all night with a sick child, and when your teen is preparing for college. We will be a part of your family’s lives.

We are open 365 days a year – with medical professionals on call 24 hours a day – to provide the all-around care that your family deserves. Morning sick call care is available without an appointment.

Lake Forest Pediatrics is conveniently located in Lake Bluff, Lindenhurst, and Vernon Hills, IL. We provide a full range of medical services for all children from newborn to age 22. In addition to sick and well-child care, we also offer lactation counseling, annual sports and school physicals, and ADHD treatment.
