We Want to Hear From You!
We are accepting new patients!
We offer comprehensive pediatric care, including the following:
Check Ups / Well Child Visits
Newborns, babies, and toddlers receive regular check-ups according to our routine check-up schedule. All children from 2 years old through adulthood need a yearly checkup. All check-up visits are schedule in advance. Please call today to schedule.
We have availability for sick visits daily. We know that children and babies need to be seen without much notice. We schedule all visits. Call for a sick visit today. We discourage walk-ins in order to keep our office running efficiently but will squeeze you in when needed.
Newborn Visits in Hospital
We see our newborns at Methodist Germantown Hospital. If your baby is born at Baptist, St. Francis, The Med, or another outside facility, the hospitalist will see your baby and we will gladly see you in the office as soon as you are discharged.
We do ADHD consultations for existing/known patients on a case-by-case basis after a thorough evaluation has been done by a psychologist. ADHD treatment can be complicated and is NOT always straightforward. If there are multiple diagnoses or complications with medicine, we may refer the patient to a Pediatric Psychiatrist for more thorough evaluation and treatment.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Monarch Pediatrics is what every parent dreams of when looking for a pediatrician’s office.
From the moment we stepped through the doors as the parents of our first newborn we have felt at home. I love that we are always greeted by the staff when we enter; when I call I speak directly to a person; and scheduling appointments, even the same day, is a breeze! No parent ever expects their child to need more than the usual well child visits, but Monarch Pediatrics has successfully taken care of us time and time again. I recommend Monarch Pediatrics a million times over!
I have entrusted Dr. Catherine with all four of my babies!! I would have no one else caring for them!
She is the absolute BEST in our book! I am one of those moms who worries about everything. I could not imagine not having her expertise! Her nurses Iola, Tracy, and Charnise are FANTASTIC! They make you feel welcome and like you are family! They are always willing to help and answer any question at any time! This is a very loving and caring practice and I will always hold them close to my heart! We are beyond blessed to have found this practice!! Cannot ever say enough wonderful things!
Dr. Catherine has been my children’s pediatrician for the past six years. We are so thankful to have found such a caring and compassionate doctor.
As a mother, I always feel like my concerns are taken seriously no matter how trivial they may be. I love that the practice is small and has a family feel. They know who I am when I call and I am almost always able to get in for same day care. My oldest daughter has Down syndrome, and Dr. Catherine has been instrumental with helping me manage her health and developmental needs as well as navigate referrals to specialists in the area. My children adore Dr. Catherine and her wonderful staff!! I highly recommend using Monarch Pediatrics if you want the best care for your child!
