Welcome to North Scottsdale Pediatrics!

Our mission is to create:

  • Confidence... that your child will receive the very best health care without unnecessary tests, procedures or medicines.
  • Comfort... in a warm, attractive atmosphere where you and your child will feel comfortable.
  • Understanding... through open and direct communication with our experienced staff, who take the time to help you understand your children’s health, development, behavior and illness.
  • Convenience... through our location, office hours, accessible parking, and nearby pharmacy, X-ray and laboratory.

Among the best pediatricians in the nation, our providers obtained their degrees from top schools and training programs in the country. They share a passion for caring for patients and have dedicated their careers to treating children. In fact, our providers are proud to be consistently voted by their peers as “Top Docs” in Phoenix Magazine multiple times over many years.

We love our families, and we even provide services for parents before your baby is born! Once you’re expecting, we encourage you to schedule a prenatal visit and tour our office. We can provide you with hospital and delivery information as well as recommended readings to help you prepare for your special delivery. Once your baby arrives if you are struggling with breastfeeding, Dr. Caplan, an official lactation consultant, can help and schedules lactation visits for any babies in our practice. And of course we are experts at newborn care.

We know that choosing the right pediatric practice is an important decision, and we appreciate your confidence in us. Welcome to our practice!

Holiday Safety Tips

Written by  Dr. Tyler Dirvonas

The holiday season is supposed to be a joyful time of year as families and friends gather to celebrate. It can also be a particularly busy time with holiday traditions leading to additional stress and dangers. It is important to remain mindful and vigilant to keep our families healthy and safe. Here are some helpful tips from healthychildren.org and the American Academy of Pediatrics to keep your holiday experience safe and joyful:

Travel Tips
· Remember that the homes you visit may not be childproofed – watch for unattended purses, unlocked cabinets and other potential dangers
· When bundling up against the cold, infants should still only wear thin layers of clothing under car seat straps. Place a blanket over the straps if needed
· Try to maintain your normal routines during travel including nap schedules and bedtimes
· Keep a list of important phone numbers with you including the local fire department, poison control (1-800-222-1222) and your pediatrician

Decorating Safely
· Be careful of flammable trees – buy fresh, water frequently and keep away from fireplaces, radiators or portable heaters
· Be cautious about tree trimmings that may contain lead and keep all small decorations or lights out of the reach of young children
· After gifts are opened immediately remove all wrapping paper, bags, ribbons or other potential suffocation or choking hazards
· Avoid using any potentially poisonous plants as decorations including mistletoe, Jerusalem cherry and holly berry

Holiday Mental Health Tips
· During particularly busy times try to pause and be present in the moment
· Parents should to take time to care for themselves both physically and mentally – children are affected by your mental health and often mirror your coping skills
· Maintain your usual household routines including sleep and mealtime schedules
· Don’t feel pressured to over-spend on gifts. Consider helping your child make homemade gifts for that may be more meaningful to relatives

Low Tech Holiday Gifts
· Traditional toys such as blocks, dolls, instruments, cars, trains, etc. remain a helpful tool for encouraging development
· Books with textures and colors for younger children; engaging chapter books that tell a story for older children
· Games, especially those that ask questions and are conversation based to engage the whole family
· Puzzles help build analytical and problem solving skills
· Outdoor toys such as balls, sleds or yard games encourage physical activity
· Tickets to child-friendly shows or events lead to family interaction, conversation and bonding

Have a happy, safe holiday!
