Welcome to North Scottsdale Pediatrics!

Thank you for visiting the website of North Scottsdale Pediatrics, a leader in pediatric medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona. Established in 1988, we strive to provide excellent care to our patients – from infancy to young adulthood!

Our mission is to create:

  • Confidence... that your child will receive the very best health care without unnecessary tests, procedures or medicines.
  • Comfort... in a warm, attractive atmosphere where you and your child will feel comfortable.
  • Understanding... through open and direct communication with our experienced staff, who take the time to help you understand your children’s health, development, behavior and illness.
  • Convenience... through our location, office hours, accessible parking, and nearby pharmacy, X-ray and laboratory.

Among the best pediatricians in the nation, our providers obtained their degrees from top schools and training programs in the country. They share a passion for caring for patients and have dedicated their careers to treating children. In fact, our providers are proud to be consistently voted by their peers as “Top Docs” in Phoenix Magazine multiple times over many years.

We love our families, and we even provide services for parents before your baby is born! Once you’re expecting, we encourage you to schedule a prenatal visit and tour our office. We can provide you with hospital and delivery information as well as recommended readings to help you prepare for your special delivery. Once your baby arrives if you are struggling with breastfeeding, Dr. Caplan, an official lactation consultant, can help and schedules lactation visits for any babies in our practice. And of course we are experts at newborn care.

We know that choosing the right pediatric practice is an important decision, and we appreciate your confidence in us. Welcome to our practice!

Flu Vaccines

Written by  Dr. Jennifer Cropp

It’s that time of year again! School has already started and winter season is quickly approaching, which means it’s time for your kids to get their flu shots! Influenza is a viral illness that can cause fever, chills, cough, congestion, sore throat, body aches, headaches, fatigue, and occasional gastrointestinal symptoms as well. Most people who get the flu will recover in a few days to weeks. However, some people develop complications from the flu which can be more severe or even life threatening. Certain people are at higher risk for complications from the flu which include younger children, children with chronic medical conditions, and pregnant women. Annual influenza vaccinations are recommended for EVERYONE, 6 months of age and older.

You may have read that this season the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has approved the limited use of the intranasal influenza vaccine. This is a change from the last two years where the intranasal vaccination was not recommended due to its poor effectiveness. Because of the intranasal vaccine’s limited effectiveness in previous years, its unknown effectiveness for this upcoming flu season, and because the AAP recommends the inactivated intramuscular influenza vaccine as the primary choice for children, we as a pediatric group have decided to only carry the inactivated influenza vaccine for our patients this season.

Our influenza vaccinations are here and we are ready to protect our children for another season (and no it’s not too early to get them!). Inquire about flu shots at your child’s well check or sick visit (mild illness is not considered a contraindication for vaccination). We also provide opportunities for patients to get their flu vaccines at our dedicated flu clinics starting this month. You can schedule your appointment for the flu clinic online via the portal. Check with your provider about whether your child will need two doses of the flu vaccine this year or only a single dose. Children less than 6 months are too young to receive the flu vaccine so we recommend other members of the household receive their flu vaccines to help protect their youngest ones.

Keep our kids healthy; get your children their flu shots!
