For Parents

Dear Parents,

As parents, we all desire the best for our children – the best family situation, the best education and the best medical care.

The concept of the “medical home” has always been at the heart of the practice of medicine. Continuity of care is undeniably critical to providing high-quality health care, providing more in-depth understanding and knowledge of your child’s health needs beyond what is obtained in a single limited visit (at an outside walk-in clinic).

Dr. Jaafar and the staff at Safari Pediatrics pledge to provide the best possible care for your children throughout their young lives. We are available 24 hours a day by phone and our offices are open five days a week. We offer same day appointments for sick and well children (if time permits) and take care of simple and complex problems.

We do not try to be everything to everyone, but we do try to be the best at what we do. We hope to enjoy a long-standing relationship with your family and we appreciate your loyalty.
