Complete Pediatric Care Center Services

KinderMender’s pediatric care centers offer a truly unique combination of family-friendly medical services.

We offer walk-in urgent care for those unplanned moments when making an appointment is simply out of the question, as well as more in-depth primary care appointments for the evaluation of medical concerns in which longer times may be needed and ongoing medical conditions need to be managed by your primary Care Provider.

The Doctors Are IN

Our pediatric care centers are staffed by a number of talented urgent and primary care physicians, all of whom are experts in their chosen fields.

Doctors of Medicine, like KinderMender’s Managing Director Keyvan Rafei, MD, attended more traditional medical schools, while physicians like Medical Director Eden Woredekal, DO, graduated from osteopathic medical schools, and are known for taking a more holistic, or all-body, approach to medicine. While some differences exist between these two kinds of physicians, both are incredibly knowledgeable about human health and disease. Additionally, all KinderMender physicians took part in pediatric residency training that specialized in the care of children.

CRNPs, or certified registered nurse practitioners, like Ashley Palumbo, CRNP, are nurses who have advanced degrees in primary care or acute care of infants, children and adolescents. CPNPs are trained specifically in delivering preventative care, patient education, parent partnering in behavioral management, and in the medical care of both healthy and sick children.
