Having the right pediatrician before you give birth is a very important part of being a new parent. Schedule a free consultation with our office to see why so many parents select Forest Land Pediatrics.
Forest Lane Pediatrics is pleased to be able to provide our patients with a new and innovative way to screen for vision problems in young children.
Forest Lane Pediatrics is a full-service pediatric office offering newborn care, routine well-child care, comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, and newborn circumcisions for the families of the greater Dallas area.
In addition to the comprehensive routine care we provide, we are pleased to offer additional services like Lactation Counseling with our Board Certified Lactation Consultants, EarWell Ear Molding for the correction of cosmetic ear deformities in newborns, Visual Evoked Potential (VEP) testing to identify vision anomalies in pre-verbal children as young as 6 months old, and allergy testing and treatment through United Allergy Services for children ages 4+ and their parents.
We have grown due to a desire to be the best pediatric practice in Dallas, Plano, Frisco and surrounding cities. We can coordinate advanced treatment for the most medically-complicated child, and we love helping first-time parents too! We strive to provide outstanding pediatric care for the families throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex who entrust their child's well-being to our experienced team of Board Certified Pediatricians.
