The Friendly Face of Baton Rouge Pediatrics

Healthy habits make happy kids, and keeping them healthy takes more than just a prescription — it takes a conversation. Dr. Despinasse and the Fertile Crescent staff believe in creating an open dialogue for patients, parents and pediatricians. Our approach to your child’s health incorporates everything you would expect from a pediatric physician (such as annual checkups and same-day sick visits) and a few things you might not expect (such as free prenatal consults for expecting parents). With the nurturing guidance of Fertile Crescent Pediatrics in Baton Rouge, your child will enjoy a healthy childhood from birth through adolescence.

Feel Better About Going to the Pediatrician

Taking your child to the doctor should be a pleasant experience. At Fertile Crescent Pediatrics, you’ll enter to a friendly atmosphere and a warm smile each time your child comes in for a checkup. Our Baton Rouge pediatrics office features an activity room to keep kids happy, as well as separate sick and well waiting areas to keep parents happy.
