Welcome to Pediatrics
Tanana Valley Clinic has been taking care of Fairbanks' most precious little people for more than 50 years, providing medical care for children from birth through ages 18. Our department includes nine board certified pediatricians, who are also fellows of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Our pediatricians are assisted by two mid-level providers, and also host a team of residents.
Our Pediatric department works as a cohesive team to meet your medical needs. We work closely with Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, having all nine of our pediatricians share the responsibility of a 24-hour "on-call" roll. During this "on-call" period, our pediatrics take care of our hospitalized patients, and attend C-sections and problematic deliveries. You may see more than one pediatrician during your child's hospital stay, but rest assured, our pediatricians review and discuss each of their patients daily so you child can receive the best care possible.
If your child needs medical attention the day your regular pediatrician is "on-call," another one of our dedicated team members will provide the highest level of care to your family.
Here are some of the services we offer:
- Well child checks and regular check-ups
- Diagnosis and treatment of childhood illnesses and diseases
- ADHD & ADD screening and treatment
- Diagnosis & management of juvenile diabetes
- Diagnosis & treatment of inhaled and food allergy, eczema, asthma, rhinitis
- Same-day appointments often available
Our Pediactric department has partnered with the University of Washington/Seattle Children's Pediatric Residency Alaska Track program. This program trains pediatricians to meet the primary care needs of children throughout the entire five-state WWAMI region, including Alaska. Our Alaska Track Residents have an incredible oportunity to work with our exceptional group of practicing physicians, and are cultivated into our cohesive team devoted to providing excellent patient care.
Our Pediatric department is proud to offer Cavity Free at Three services as part of your child's Well Child Check, promoting the importance of early childhood oral health. We also proudly support the national Reach Out and Read program, encouraging you to read daily with your child to promote early literacy. With both of these programs, you may leave your child's Well Child Check with a book, a toothbrush, and a smile on your face, knowing we care for your child's future.
