About Family First Pediatrics

Welcome to Family First Pediatrics! Dr. Tad Shirley founded the practice in December 2007 with a goal of establishing a family focused clinic. Our practice is structured with convenience in mind. We pride ourselves on our flexible appointment schedule - offering same day appointments in addition to our scheduled appointments and we do not "double book" appointments. This policy ensures the shortest wait time possible for you and your children.

We strive to have patients see their preferred physician at most, if not all, visits. This allows us to to strengthen the relationship between the physician and child. It also gives the parents the added peace of mind knowing your child will be cared for by someone who truly knows them and your family, and with whom you are comfortable. As your child ages we understand that they may prefer to see a physician of their same gender and we have planned for this by providing both male and female physicians.

We welcome prospective new patients to visit our office and/or meet with our physicians. Meet-the doctor appointments can be scheduled during our lunch hours or at the end of the day.

We are continually trying to improve the care and service we offer. We openly accept all suggestions, recommendations, and criticisms. Please feel free to share your suggestions privately with our Office Manager or directly with your physician.
