Pediatric Care North opened its doors to families in the Northland in January of 1989. The practice began with 2 pediatricians and several staff members who are still working with us today. We have grown to our present size of nine board-certified pediatricians and 4 nurse practitioners. We will be joined by a new pediatrician in August when he completes his residency. We built our current building in 2006 with no plans for moving in the future. We are hoping to expand our current floor space in our unfinished basement in the next 1-2 years. We are proud to offer exceptional and long standing care with many of our first patients now returning with their own children.

    Dental Hygienist

    Dr. Toma is such an amazing, honest and caring dentist.  I had to have alot of work done because another dentist messed up my teeth years ago. And he has made sure that I am comfortable with the procedure and Reyna always works out a payment plan for me when my insurance (Delta Dental) are not doing what they should do to get proper coverage. Doctor Toma is definitely top notch!!
