Welcome to Our Practice
Kids Creek Children's Clinic has been serving the families of the Grand Traverse region since 1961. Though the faces have changed over the years, our mission has remained the same. Simply put, we care for our community's healthcare needs one child at a time.
At Kids Creek Children's Clinic, we are proud to offer comprehensive health care that centers on a child’s physical, emotional, and developmental well being. Our compassionate and experienced providers are all Board Certified in the specialty of Pediatrics and serve patients from infancy through early adulthood. Our entire staff welcomes the opportunity to support families as they provide healthy environments in which children can thrive as they grow.
We are pleased to offer families appointments with the provider of their choice.

Accepting New Patients
How it works, step by step.............
- The day before a patient’s appointment, healow CHECK-IN automatically sends a text reminder to the patient’s phone and to the healow app. By clicking the reminder link, patients can confirm their appointment and start the check-in process. There’s no need to make a phone call, wait on hold, or wonder whether the practice has reserved the appointment time.
- During check in, patients review their demographics, confirm their insurance coverage, sign consent forms, fill out questionnaires, and review medications, allergies, hospitalizations, and surgical histories. healow is putting an end to the days of asking patients to fill out lengthy forms by hand — with the potential for errors and the need for staff to then transcribe the information into a computer system.
Finally, when it’s time for the actual appointment, healow allows the patient to click “I have arrived” on their smartphone, letting the practice know they have arrived at the office, and where and how to find them.
We are no longer scheduling dose #1 COVID-19 vaccine clinics, as it is now time for us to shift to dose #2. Going forward, we will be offering the Pfizer vaccine for 5 to 11 year old children (both doses #1 and #2) at limited vaccine appointments available primarily on Tuesdays. Please call to schedule. Since we have limited availability, we encourage you to seek other appointment options which are available in our community if Tuesdays do not work for your family.
We are continuing to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at Well Child and medication check appointments for children between 5 and 11 years of age. If your child is due for their Well Child exam, call to schedule that appointment and we will vaccinate them at the time of their visit – keep in mind you must allow time for a 15-minute observation after the vaccine is given. We are only offering the COVID-19 vaccine to children aged 5 to 11 years.
The COVID-19 vaccine for 5 to 11 year old children and children aged 12 and older is available at the Grand Traverse County Health Department at https://www.gtcountymi.gov/2394/COVID-19-Vaccine-Information, and at the Munson Healthcare Pediatric Immunization Clinic at 935-8125. It is also available at local pharmacies.
In our goal to keep everyone safe during this COVID-19 pandemic,
we will be asking all people entering the building to wear masks or some sort of facial covering.
If you have any questions regarding this request please call the office before your appointment.
Kids Creek Children's Clinic Scheduling changes during the COVID-19 pandemic
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have altered our scheduling of appointments according to American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines.
The goal is to lessen contact between patients and therefore risk of exposure.
As the incidence of COVID-19 in our area diminishes (thankfully!) we are starting to relax our restrictions on well child visits.
Each well child visit is important - we assess growth, check blood pressure, examine children physically and give vaccines in addition to other important elements.
We will continue to keep our infection control measures in place – scheduling well visits early in the day and sick later, not using our waiting room,
limiting attendance at the appointment to parents and the patient, and sanitizing our office continuously.
Medication checks, visits for ADHD, and mental health visits may be scheduled as Televisits.
If you do not have access to the internet, we will schedule in-person visits early in the day. Sick visits will be scheduled in the later afternoons only.
Some sick visits may be done via Televisit -- see our website or Facebook for those options (or our front desk staff can guide you).
We ask that all patients wait in your car and call us when you arrive. We will escort you to an exam room as soon as one is available.
Remember that only parents accompany the patient to their visit, no siblings, other family members or friends.
Our primary focus at Kids Creek Children’s Clinic is the health and safety of your children.
We are currently scheduling well child visits for children of all ages. Call us to schedule at your earliest convenience.
We recommend that you please use scientific resources to seek information regarding COVID-19
