Our Physicians

Welcome to Trestlewood Pediatrics! We are happy you are visiting our web site.

My name is Elvie Marfil and I am the Office Manager at Trestlewood Pediatrics. I am available to answer questions concerning joining our practice, insurance contracts and responsibilities, immunizations and our wellness schedule. I encourage you to review our web site. If you have any questions or need clarification on any subject please make your list of questions and feel free to give me a call!

Are you preparing for the birth of your first child?
I schedule Expecting Parent tours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. At that time you can meet office staff, pick up a new patient packet, possibly meet some of our physicians and ask questions concerning our practice. To call and schedule a tour, you can reach me at 269-381-0118 and ask for Elvie. During the phone call I will ask if you plan to immunize your child and what company your child will be insured by.

If you are new to the area
We are accepting new patients for those who are new to the area and in need of a physician. We will warmly accept you into our practice. Please call me so I can answer any questions you have as well as give you suggestions to help expedite getting your child's medical records to our practice. We must have your child(ren)'s medical records in our office before we can schedule any appointments. I will also confirm we are contracted with your insurance and that you are planning to immunize your child according to the recommendations of the ACIP (see the immunization schedule). It is our policy that all of our new patient's immunize their child according to the ACIP recommendations.

Local area transfers to our office
If you are interested in transferring your children to our practice and you are currently seeing another physician in the area, please call and request to speak to me. We have a waiting list for families that would like to transfer to our practice that are currently seeing physicians in our local area. I will confirm that we are contracted with your insurance and that you currently immunize your child(ren) according to the ACIP recommendations and intend to continue to do so.

What makes our practice different from other pediatric practices?

  • Your child will always be seen by a board-certified pediatrician and you will be given the choice when scheduling each visit which pediatrician you would like to see.
  • If your child has an urgent issue, acute problem or emergency after hours, you can reach one of our physicians after hours on the on-call cell phone at (269)998-0554. One of our doctors answers the on-call cell phone after hours — no answering service and no nurse triage.
  • We offer same day appointments when your child is urgently sick or has an acute issue.
  • New patients and parents are warmly welcomed.
  • Our centrally located office is convenient to Kalamazoo, Portage and beyond.


Thank you for the opportunity to introduce you to Trestlewood Pediatrics. I look forward to talking to you.
