Welcome to Trestlewood Pediatrics

Trestlewood Pediatrics is unique. As an independent practice, we are here to provide personal care to your children. As your child’s health care provider, our goal is to partner with you to provide quality personal care for your child. You are our first resource in understanding your child’s needs. We are committed to improving the well-being of all the children and families who trust us for their care. By helping to nurture a strong body and a strong sense of self-worth in every child in our care, we believe we are carrying out a vital responsibility of critical importance to our community.

We continually strive to improve our service to you. We thoroughly enjoy our partnership with you in your child’s and family’s lives and hope our service meets your needs. Please let us know if you have ideas or suggestions to improve our web site or other services by calling our Office Manager at (269) 381-0118 or e-mailing us with your comments.

Good things are happening at Trestlewood Pediatrics!

We have recently achieved certification as a Patient Centered Medical Home. What this means is that we have achieved recognition for partnering with you to coordinate all of your medical needs.

A Patient Centered Medical Home is a trusting partnership between a health care team led by your doctor and you — the informed patient.

As always, we strive to explain illnesses, treatments and test results in an easy, understandable way, and ask you to take part in planning your care and follow the agreed upon plan.

We also hope you will think about calling us first before seeking advice elsewhere. We want to be your "go-to" for expert health care advice!

Ask us if you have any questions about this model.

Dr. Somers' Blog

My blog is directed to parents of Trestlewood Pediatrics' patients in in order to give more insight into the way I think about health, as well as useful facts. My comments are shaped by my own personal experience in medicine (four years of medical school, four years pediatric residency, thirteen years general pediatric practice), motherhood (I have three daughters, ages 14, 11, and 8), published research in the field, as well as policies and recommendations from pediatric and medical organizations.
