Care for the Whole Child

The emotional and behavioral health of a child is just as important as the physical.


What makes LRPMG different?


Our practice is committed to caring for the whole child - both physically and emotionally.  We work as a team comprised of parents, physicians, nurses and office staff to provide a supportive and careful medical home for your children.

Our physicians work as a group, which means that every child is each physician's patient. This way, if your usual physician is unavailable for an appointment, there is always a pediatrician pleased to see your child, offering consistent and thoughtful medical care. Welcome Dr. Christopher Tolcher! (see "Meet Our Staff" below for info about Dr. Tolcher)

As physicians, we believe strongly in preventive healthcare and parent education. We do our best to share our knowledge of health issues and the care of children, giving guidance for home evaluation and the initial care of common illnesses and problems.  We are able to do this both during office visits and via our consistently updated website - check out the "ADVICE" tab above.

Our nurses are an integral part of our care for children; the advice that you receive from our nurses on the phone is specifically directed by the physician. We are proud to have as part of our office family nurses who have years of pediatric nursing experience, who are parents themselves, and who truly care about the families they serve. The physicians are constantly in contact with nurses throughout the day, discussing issues and providing direction.

We work hard to maintain an office that provides the most up to date medical care and service available and are proud of the care we provide. 

Please join our family!
