At VPAA, we provide medical care to children from birth to age 21. We opened our doors in the summer of 1979. Since then, we have treated thousands of patients, presently treating second and third generation. Our dedicated staff is here to provide full support to our families. We are committed in sharing the latest medical information as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, CDC, as well as the local Health Department, and all other institutions involved in the well being of young patients.

We belive in the value of treating our familis with respect, expecting the same in return.. Also, we believe in the value of communication by offering PATIENT PORTAL on line access to all our families, allowing them to stay informed of all decisions and results obtained in the course of treating the patient. Promptness and punctuality are our gold stands. So as you join our VPAA family, we say WELCOME!
