Established in 1975, IHA Child Health – Ann Arbor is a group of board-certified pediatricians and nurse practitioners (NP) who are committed to providing personal and quality care for children from birth to adolescence.
Looking for a doctor? We have a MEET THE PROVIDER night scheduled once monthly with one of our MD and NP staff. Please call our office if you are interested in coming to this introductory session.
During regular office hours, we have 2 separate waiting rooms – one for well children (BLUE side) and one for sick children (RED side). We offer extended evening hours and Saturday hours. We strive to provide same-day appointments when you call in. Our patients and families are always encouraged to call 24/7 when medical problems arise. We have trained, pediatric nurses who have access to your child’s electronic medical chart when our office is closed.

The Pediatricians of IHA believe in the safety and benefits of childhood immunizations. We advocate following the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for vaccination. We stay informed about newly published immunization studies and have not seen any studies that lead us to support the delay of immunizations or use of alternative immunization schedules. Alternative immunization schedules leave children unprotected at the most vulnerable ages.
To best protect your children, our other patients, as well as our staff and providers from vaccine preventable illness, we have made the decision to only accept new families into our practices who plan to fully vaccinate their children according to the Center for Disease Control and American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines. The schedule is available by clicking here. If your child is behind on the recommended vaccines, the office may contact you or we ask that you discuss this with your provider at the next visit.
Immunizations have helped children stay healthy for more than 50 years. They are safe and they work. In fact, serious side effects are no more common than those from other types of medication. Vaccinations have reduced the number of infections from vaccine-preventable diseases by more than 90%. Yet many parents still questions their safety because of misinformation they've received. That's why it's important to turn to a reliable and trusted source, including your child's doctor for information.
