About Us

When you’re a patient at Northwest Pediatrics, you’re part of our family.

Dr. Janet Dees established Northwest Pediatrics in 2001, with herself as the only doctor. The practice has flourished and has now expanded to include five board-certified pediatricians, a physician’s assistant, and two nurse practitioners, as well as an exceptional clinical staff of nurses and medical assistants who help in all areas of patient care.

Our warm and compassionate staff embodies Dr. Dees’ vision of a team approach to the health of the whole child, working hard to create a comforting environment for patients and their families. As a certified Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Northwest Pediatrics is the children’s primary care provider and can coordinate care among specialists, hospitals, and other healthcare services.

Our staff and providers strive to make every interaction a positive experience for you and your children. We value our friendly, caring, and energetic administrative staff, who are the first to greet you as you walk in the door and who make the office run effectively and efficiently. Our providers care for our patients as if they were their own children; this is what it means to be part of the Northwest Pediatrics family.

Northwest Pediatrics is fortunate to have such a skilled, compassionate, and hardworking team. To learn more about our providers, click here. To learn more about our services, click here. To learn more information for new patients, click here

About Us

"I have taken my son here for the past 10 years—love Dr. Vapne , Dr. Dees, and Dr. Summers. Her staff is great and we can always get an appointment or a second opinion. They have a beautiful facility with very nice receptionist and nurses. My four month old daughter was automatically accepted when born, and Dr. Dees was there at Women's Hospital bright and early the morning after she was born to examine her."
