Learn more about us »

We love to meet new families!

North Seattle Pediatrics would be honored to be your child’s healthcare provider. We strive to form a close collaboration between our staff, physicians, patients and families, giving us all an active role in your child’s healthcare.

To facilitate your first visit, please download and complete all new patient forms and review our office policies. We look forward to seeing you soon!

We are committed to you and the people you love.

Our team of pediatricians and staff works closely with patients, families and specialists to make every visit and experience a positive one.

Visit us from the comfort and safety of your own home.

 For many concerns, such as follow up appointments, consults and even some sick visits, we can see your child with a telemedicine visit from the comfort and safety of your own home. We want to provide you with expanded access to your child’s medical home and keep your family out of the emergency room or urgent care.

Appointments are during regular office hours. Well child visits cannot be done via telemedicine.

Take the “Pain” out of Pain Reliever Dosing

Be confident that you are treating your child’s pain or fever with the correct dose of medication. We can guide you here on how much Motrin or Tylenol to give, based on your child’s weight. Benadryl too!

Life is busy. Juggling your day-to-day schedule and staying on top of your family’s health care can be a challenge, but our patient portal can help. Access your child’s medical records 24/7 from your home, office or smart phone.

Vaccines save lives.

We believe that vaccinating your child is the most important health-promoting intervention we can provide, and that all children and young adults should receive all of the recommended vaccines according to the schedule published by the CDC and the AAP.

Our office policies play an important role in helping us deliver the best care possible.

    Update on the Covid vaccine

    Per communication from the Washington State Department of Health today: "Bivalent COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorized or available in the United States." It is expected that updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines will begin arriving in Washington state within the next week. However, we at NSP do not know when they will be made available to us at the outpatient clinic level.
    For any families that have appointments for a Covid vaccine only already scheduled in September, our front office staff will be contacting you and canceling those appointments.
    We will post here and on our Facebook page when we have any updates on the status of our Covid vaccine availability.

    Thank you.

    Dr. Herb Hilgers

    Dr. Herb Hilgers was one of the founding doctors of North Seattle Pediatrics. It was an honor to work with him. He will be missed.

    Shared by Kryss Abreu Bywater 2/6/23: A week ago today, we lost one of this world's best men, Herb Hilgers. It has taken me the past seven days of deep grieving to work up the emotional effort to post this tribute to my bonus dad. And oh, what an incredible bonus he was. Herb officially became my bonus dad in 1982 when he married my mom. From the very beginning, he loved and treated me as if I were his own child. Through his words and actions, he taught me how one should treat their life partner. He taught me what it meant to truly be selfless and non-judgmental. Read more »

    To our patients and families,

    As your medical home, we want to clearly state that we believe racism and inequality in all their forms are detrimental to all aspects of health.

    We stand together to fight against racism, injustice and inequality, and we believe in equity and inclusion. We believe in providing the highest standard of medical care to all children and their families, regardless of the color of their skin, the language they speak, their gender or orientation.
