Slothower Pediatrics is dedicated to providing excellent care to patients from birth to 18 years of age.

Our primary focus is to give your child the most accurate diagnosis possible, at an affordable cost, while sharing vital health-related information with you to further improve your child's health.

We care about every child's well-being, which is why we take the time to get to know each of our patients very well.
