Caring for Children is Our Specialty
Pediatricians receive special training in the health and illnesses of infants, children, teens, and young adults. We provide preventive health care for children in good health, medical care for children with chronic conditions such as ADHD or asthma, newborn care, developmental screenings, and much more. We also provide parents with support and advice with issues such as growth and development, safety and prevention, nutrition, and emotional wellness to foster a lifetime of good health. We pierce ears too.
Relationships Built on Trust
At Jackson Street Pediatrics, it is important to us that families feel comfortable in the relationships we build and trust that we are on the same page when making the best decisions for their children.
To that end, we seek to provide evidence-based care and education so that our families can feel confident in the medical decisions that we make together. Dr. Wicker-Brown joined as a community member of Ochsner Physician Partners to ensure she has access to the most current, evidence-based care guidelines and resources that will keep our patients well.
