10/14/2021– COVID-19 UPDATE

Hello- Here at Village Pediatrics we are all well and hope that you and your families are too! The VP providers and staff are here to help care for your children ages 0-22. We are seeing scheduled patients in our Southern Village office from 8am to 5pm. 

 

We’re also able to treat many problems as Virtual Visits using internet video connection via Face Time or secure Zoom.  If you have a concern that you’ve been meaning to discuss with your child’s doctor, this is an ideal time to call!

 

To keep your family healthy, we recommend scheduling the following types of appointments:

  • Newborns and babies under 2 years of age will be seen in the office for regular checkups (birth and 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months). These visits are so important to your infants health! At each wellness visit:
  • Your baby Is weighed and measured to monitor growth parameters
  • Your baby has a hands on physical exam to screen for serious illness
  • You have time ask questions and we provide anticipatory guidance
  • Your baby receives necessary vaccines (a resurgence in measles or whooping cough would be terrible right now!)
  • Sick visits are by appointment only, please call for same day appointment
    • Fevers, sore throats, coughs, stomach aches can all be evaluated including any necessary testing
  • Virtual visits using Face Time or Zoom technology-
    • Routine medication follow- up visits for ADHD or mood
    • New onset concerns for ADHD, anxiety, OCD, depression
    • Behavioral concerns such as sleep challenges, picky eating, potty struggles, toddler tantrums, and setting limits with your teen

Kim Gush, MD PhD

Owner and Medical Director

Dr. Kim Gush moved to Chapel Hill with her family in 1995 to attend UNC School of Medicine where she was accepted into the MD/PhD program. In 2000, she completed the first 2 years of medical school and earned her PhD after completing a dissertation on hematopoetic stem cell development and gene therapy. Dr Gush received several awards during medical and graduate school including the prestigious MacNider award and several merit awards. She finished medical school in 2002. Dr Gush completed her pediatric residency at UNC Children’s Hospital in 2005 and received a Kaiser Permanente Teaching Award. Upon completion she worked in the outpatient pediatric gastroenterology clinic at UNC until she opened Village Pediatrics in March of 2006.

“I had long dreamed of opening my own practice and offering something a little different from what I, my family, and friends were experiencing when interacting within the medical establishment. Specifically, I wanted to offer better medical service. The idea that a patient could be greeted with a smile, listened to for more than 90 seconds, and spoken to with words of respect, comfort, and encouragement seems a novel concept in today’s medical environment. But I want to establish this as the norm instead of the exception. This is what I hope to provide at Village Pediatrics.”
