Grand Opening Scheduled for New Laurel Location of KinderMender Walk-In Pediatric Center

KinderMender Walk-In Pediatric Center will be celebrating the grand opening of its newest location in Laurel.

The grand opening ceremony, which will take place on March 16, 2013 at the new pediatric care center, will feature food, drinks, balloon animals, a clown, a tour of the new facility, and door prizes that attendees can win every half hour.
The new pediatric care center is located at 805 Washington Blvd, and will house six urgent care/sick care rooms, with a medication dispensary and a state of the art x-ray machine on site, and three segregated “well child” rooms, which will prevent the spread of infection. Like the current Columbia location, the Laurel location will also provide walk-in services for all sick visits, as well as check-up services and vaccinations.
“Our growth in Columbia has been nothing short of astounding,” said Dr. Keyvan Rafei, KinderMender’s affable founder and medical director. “We designed our first location in Columbia to truly break the mold of the stuffy, scary doctor’s office to make a facility that children actually look forward to visiting. We’re now doing the same thing in Laurel.”
True to form, the facility will feature large, boldly-colored, child-friendly decorations, an unintimidating, open layout so children and parents alike can see throughout the facility (exam rooms are private and closed off, of course), a play room, a wall-mounted train which immediately captures the attention of the young patients to distract them from their discomfort, and a bilingual staff that speaks fluent English and Spanish.

Here's What Parents Say

  • “Everything about the visit was outstanding. We are so very happy we found this place. The staff is efficient, professional, and friendly. The facility is bright, clean, and child friendly. This will be our go to medical office…”

  • “Everyone we worked with, from the time we first called with questions through when we left after our appointment, was extremely friendly, efficient, and just overall wonderful and easy to work with. The place was clean, pretty, warm, and inviting!”

  • “Everyone is always patient and kind; it is so important to me that my kids are treated well especially at a doctor’s office because it directly influences their level of comfort and anxiety for the rest of their lives.”

  • “Fast, friendly and efficient service received. The Doctor was very friendly and informative. My child felt comfortable and was at ease by the kind nature of everyone. From the time we walked in we were greeted with a warm, friendly smile and immediate attention.”

  • “Always very welcoming and KinderMender makes it as comfortable as possible for the children. My son is no longer scared of going to the doctor because of his wonderful experiences here. It is so nice to have somewhere to take him that is not ‘scary.’ Thank you!”

  • “Everyone is always very friendly, helpful and sensitive to my child’s needs. They had us in and out in less than 20 minutes which is so important when dealing with a grouchy, sick child.”
