Good Shepherd's Pediatric Program is accepting new outpatient therapy patients who have a prescription from their pediatrician. However, due to the length of our waiting list for evaluations by a developmental pediatrician, Good Shepherd Pediatrics is not currently accepting new patients who wish to make an appointment with a developmental pediatrician. Good Shepherd's Pediatrics Program remains committed to providing inpatient and outpatient services for its patients.
