Mission Statement


Our practice is dedicated to providing your family with the finest personalized, attentive, and collaborative care. Together, we will do our best to optimize your child’s health and development.

Welcome to The Pediatric Place!

Our pediatric practice was established by Dr. Bergman in 2005 to provide optimal personalized care for your child. We welcomed Dr. Miriam Karsh to the practice in September, 2012. Together, we take pride in knowing your child well and achieving a personal level of attention that is only available from having continuous care from the same physicians and nursing staff. We have merged the old-fashioned days of very personal doctor-patient relationships with some of the benefits of our modern medical system: computerized medical records, child development and adolescent screening tools, novel educational and intervention programs (see Nutrition/Weight Management Programs, Exercise Programs, Podcasts, etc.), links to web-based unbiased information, and constant continuing education as pediatricians to provide your child the best care possible.

Please review our Biography pages and examine the health programs implemented through our practice to determine if this is the right fit you are seeking for your child’s pediatric care. You may call the office to arrange a no-fee appointment to meet you and your child.

If you already have selected us as your family’s pediatricians we thank you for your trust and confidence and do hope we will enjoy seeing your child grow and prosper to adulthood together.
