A Message From Our Medical Director:
Bernadette Antonyrajah, MD

Dear Friends, Neighbors, and Colleagues – and all the Parents of the children in our community:

I am excited to debut our new pediatric practice – ADVANCED KIDS CARE. I want to give you some insight into our founding ADVANCED KIDS CARE, which differs from the traditional pediatric practice.

Prior to founding ADVANCED KIDS CARE, our pediatricians worked in Orlando children’s hospitals where we recognized a substantial need for readily-available, improved, specialized, and up-to-date pediatric services. During the same period, parents in our community often told us that they had been searching for better care for their children, especially on an urgent basis. We realized that our higher level of pediatric training, as well as our specific expertise, would enable a more comprehensive and capable level of pediatric care than otherwise available in Orlando. The result became ADVANCED KIDS CARE.

The new ADVANCED KIDS CARE is different than the traditional pediatric practice because our pediatricians have a higher level of training and experience. We have specialized in cardiology, and also in the critical and emergency care of children.

Because the emergency care of children is different than the emergency care of adults, pediatric emergency care–with a high level of expertise and service–is usually only found in hospitals addressing the sickest of children. However, our pediatricians will not only address critical emergencies but also will address children’s general health and well-being.

ADVANCED KIDS CARE will be offering the services of a traditional pediatric practice in addition to urgent care. We will treat everything from common colds and minor injuries to dehydration, lacerations, and fractures. (We will see walk-ins every day of the week and after-hours.) Also, upon request, we will provide a concierge service for those parents who seek the extra attention involved with preventative care, fitness, and nutrition.

As the pediatricians at ADVANCED KIDS CARE, we are truly proud of the new service that we will offer our community. We will provide our community’s children with the utmost skill and attention. Each physician at ADVANCED KIDS CARE is dedicated to treating each child with Competence, Caring, and Compassion.

We believe that if better is possible, then good is not enough! We look forward to serving you.

English Manners & Etiquette

Principal, Vivienne-Hepburn-Hunt, Children’s Behavioral Coach
British Manners and Etiquette, really are two of the most important assets that will set your children apart from the rest, always giving them the edge over others, as they take their journey through life. It’s all about training from an early age.

Setting the rules, starting with the basics which will make for a happy family all-round. Without parameters, rude, ill-mannered and unruly children grow up to be rude, ill-mannered and unruly adults. These are not attributes that will endear them in business or social circles later on.

In so many situations your children’s behavior is a reflection of the time you have spent or not spent in teaching them the accepted norms in life. In not bothering with these parental duties, you are setting yourself and your children up for a lifetime of unhappy experiences.
