Welcome to Kathleen Ennabi Pediatrics. Our goal is to create an open, cooperative relationship with you as a partner in your child’s health. We understand that choosing a pediatrician to care for your child is an important decision. We will do our best to make each visit a good experience and provide the personal care your child deserves.
All of our providers and staff members are qualified, caring, attentive and approachable. We’re also up-to-date on the latest developments in pediatric care — and we always welcome new patients.
A Patient-Centered Medical Home is not a building, place or hospital. Rather, it is an approach to providing comprehensive healthcare. As your PCMH, we want to be the first place you think of for all of your child’s medical needs. We believe that the partnership between the patient, the patient’s family, and his/her primary care provider and care team is important. The care team, led by your primary care provider, is committed to providing the best healthcare services possible. Your child’s care team will work with you and any outside providers or facilities to coordinate care across all settings, including behavioral health. The team will offer appropriate medical advice, information, and self-management support based on current recommendations and evidence-based guidelines.

- Listens to your questions, concerns and feelings, as well as those of your child

You and Your Child
- Are comfortable sharing concerns and questions with your pediatric team and other health care providers
- Provide a complete and accurate medical and family history to your pediatric team to ensure that the practice has all of the most important and relevant medical information to effectively care for your child
- Routinely communicate your child’s needs and family priorities to your pediatric team
- Remember to tell your pediatric team about any care received between visits (including emergency room visits, urgent care clinics) so we can help coordinate your child’s care

- Keep scheduled appointments or call to reschedule as soon as possible
- Bring your insurance card to each appointment
- Pay copays and past-due balances at the time of service
We see you, the parent, as an important member of your child’s health care team. As your child matures, we hope he or she will become an increasingly active team member. Preparing your child to take the lead in caring for his or her own health is, ultimately, our team’s most important task.
Whether your first visit is for a new baby or an older child, please take the time to fill out our new patient forms. We also ask that you bring your child’s current insurance card. This will help us verify your insurance so we can see your child as quickly as possible.
If you are an expecting mother, you don’t need to pre-register with our office. Simply tell the hospital staff that you would like your newborn to be seen in our office within two days of discharge. If your baby is born at another hospital, please call us on the day you are discharged to schedule an appointment for your baby.
Please note, we are not accepting new patients at this time.
