Visitor guidelines: As COVID-19 vaccination rates rise and infection rates fall, we continue to review and update our visitation procedures. Please review our latest guidelines before coming to any Children’s Wisconsin location.
In all of our specialty care, primary care and urgent care clinics, two individuals may accompany the patient.
Good Hope Pediatrics features pediatricians who provide compassionate and dedicated medical care for children of all ages. We are affiliated with the pediatric experts of Children's Wisconsin and can draw upon those resources to provide the highest level of medical care possible.
Children’s Wisconsin is not public testing site for COVID-19. Nationwide access to testing supplies is limited. Children’s is only able to test patients who meet CDC guidelines.
The pediatricians and staff of Good Hope Pediatrics are dedicated to making your child's development and medical care our priority. We look forward to providing your children with outstanding medical care that you can trust.
Connected with Children's
Good Hope Pediatrics carries with it the Children's name. That means you can take comfort in knowing your child's doctor is affiliated with one of the top children's hospitals in the nation. Our pediatricians will connect you directly with the best available doctor if your child ever needs to see a specialist at the main hospital. And best of all, Children's specialists will keep your Good Hope primary care doctor updated on any tests, diagnoses, or treatments.

Accepting new patients
Visits are by appointment only. Please try to schedule well-child visits and checkups several weeks in advance. We understand sick children may need to be seen immediately and same-day appointments are available.
We offer several options to make it easy for you to schedule your appointment:
- If you are an existing patient with a MyChart account, log in and pick your slot
- See our provider's available appointment slots and book your own
- If you prefer to have our team call you, submit our online appointment request form
- Call the clinic at (414) 536-0236
Please schedule your appointment or meet & greet* today!
*A meet & greet visit is a free appointment that allows you to meet with the doctor of your choice and see if our primary care office is a good fit for your family. Please remember that this is not a medical consultation and the doctor will not treat your child or offer medical advice during the visit.
After-hours phone calls are directed to our answering service and are handled by one of our on-call physicians.
For emergencies, please call 9-1-1 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.
Billing and insurance
Children in need of hospitalization may be admitted to Children's Wisconsin-Milwaukee Campus. Those with minor injuries or problems may be referred to one of our urgent care locations or local emergency rooms.
