Welcome to Southwest Pediatrics

Caring for children from birth through 21 years old

Southwest Pediatrics is thrilled to offer Pfizer/Biontech’s COVID 19 vaccine to all childen 5 years and older.  We are now scheduling appointments to receive the vaccine!  Please call our offices to schedule your child’s two-dose series .   In addition, booster doses are available to schedule for 16 year olds and older who are 6 months from their last vaccinations.  Questions about the vaccine and its authorization, please check our our own Dr. Surasek and Dr Deshpande discussing the vaccine:

2020 brought the 40th anniversary of Southwest Pediatrics and one of our most challenging years to date, specifically COVID-19 in our community.  In 2021, through in-house COVID- 19 testing and vaccinations, we are happy to help our families get back to school & activies safely, helping to earn recognition by our families being voted as Best of the Southtown 2021! And now, we are excited to announce that Southwest Pediatrics is growing!  We have acquired three additional exam rooms to expand our Palos Park Office (AKA the Annex), and we are excited to announce the addition of Dr. Kelsey Heroux to our team.   Dr. Heroux returns to Chicago after completing her residency at Children’s Hospital of LA.  As we grow, we will continue to offer the same quality medical care (in person and virtually through Televisits) to the children of the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago.

CARING FOR CHILDREN FROM BIRTH THROUGH 21 YEARS OLD

We are a full service general pediatric office serving Chicago’s southwest suburbs with offices in Palos Park and Mokena.

YOU WANT THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILD

At Southwest Pediatrics, we are your partners in ensuring the very best health care for your child. At every visit, your child will be examined and treated by a board-certified pediatrician, with the support of registered nurses and medical assists. Our physicians will always take the time to listen to your concerns and answer all of your questions, so you will leave our office certain that your child is receiving the best medical care possible. We truly believe that every patient is the most important patient!

YOU WANT PROMPT AND CONVENIENT CARE

We offer same-day visits Monday through Saturday for children who are ill or otherwise in need of immediate care. For well exams, sports and school physicals, and other non-urgent appointments, our front desk will schedule a time that is convenient for your busy schedule. We also have nurses available to answer questions during office hours, and, of course, our physicians are on call 24 hours, 7 days a week through our answering service.
