Welcome to Hollister Pediatrics

We’re more than just a general pediatric practice. At Hollister Pediatrics, your child’s health and wellness are about so much more than just check-ups, sore throats, and the occasional runny nose. That’s why we offer a full array of care and services you won’t find anywhere else.

Our Approach

Parenting is a journey, and we’re here to provide care for kids, adolescents, and support for families — for the big things, the small things, and everything in between. From advanced medical treatments to everyday health advice, we offer specialized care that goes beyond the basics to ensure your child’s complete well-being. At Hollister Pediatrics we understand that every child is unique. Our approach is centered around creating a supportive and nurturing environment where children can thrive. We work closely with parents to ensure they are informed and involved in every step of their child’s healthcare journey.
