Back-to-school physicals

CMS resumes school on August 25th 2014. All rising 6th graders will require a DTAP immunization. Remember to schedule your student's physical early as slots in July and August fill up quickly. As we get closer to the 25th of August, our schedule will become booked up! Schedule your child's well visit appointment today!

Requests for physical forms and/or immunization records require a 24 hour turnaround.

We now charge a $10 per item processing fee if you need to have immunization records and/or a health assessment form printed and/or faxed for school. This information is provided free of charge through your KidsChart Online.

We are unable to complete physical forms based on physicals performed by other medical offices, including urgent cares, or based on a well child exam that occurred in our office over one year prior to the date of request.

Be sure to find out if your child has had a physical within the last year. Most insurance carriers will only cover ONE routine physical per year.

Welcome to Starks Pediatrics at Mallard Creek

Teddy Bear

Dr. Starks founded Starks Pediatrics at Mallard Creek in 2007 with the goal of bringing children's healthcare back to the community, back to each family knowing and trusting their doctor.

Dr. Starks sought to create a healing village for children which provides for all of a child's health care needs from well child care to outpatient management of acute and chronic illness. The philosophy of our healing village is that each child and family deserves respectful, experienced, and trusted care. Dr. Starks has worked tirelessly to provide just that type of care to children and has brought together a group of compassionate and experienced staff to assist in creating an environment in which children feel welcomed and nurtured.
