 Experience the Imagination

Grab your cape, princess dress, and wizard cloak before coming to Good Pediatrics, where as soon as you walk through our doors, you’ll be transported to a practice full of imagination and intricate decorations.

The waiting room walls are adorned with display cases with antique toys, props, and a six-foot tall Frozen castle. Newborns will be led to one of our 2 rooms we save just for our youngest patients. Everyone else will be led to one of our themed exam rooms which include our Star Wars room with action figures from the original 1977 movie. The superhero room is covered with collectable artwork from DC and Marvel, with a centerpiece created and autographed by Stan Lee. Our princess room is just as decorated with wall murals of life-sized Disney Princesses. Hanging from the ceiling is a crystal chandelier so patients feel like they’re at a ball.

All aboard 9 ¾! For the older wizards, there is a Harry Potter themed-room with hanging candles, a sorting hat, magic wands, and a fireplace. There is also a room for the younger patients with Paw Patrol, PJ Masks, Bluey, Hello Kitty, My Little Pony, and Dr. Seuss characters. The Disney Room, is equipped with more than 101 Dalamations, lithographs, and antique to present day figurines as well as 13 stunning Disney puzzles put together by Dr. Good and her family.  Even Grandpa chipped in during quarantine and assembled the Incredibles puzzle.
