Dr. Starks and her staff work tirelessly to to provide top-notch medical care for your child. We want to create an environment where your child feels welcomed and nurtured. Whether it’s just a regular checkup, illness, or immunizations, we will walk you through every step of your child's treatment.

It starts with the best medical care for your child.

For more than thirty years, Dr. LaWanna Starks has been caring for patients. That’s a lot of diapers.

We care for your child as if they were our own.

Sometimes the greatest medicine is a hug and a smile.

As a parent herself, Dr. Starks knows that nothing is more important to you than your child's safety and health. It can be unnerving to be kept in the dark about a loved one's medical conditions and care, most especially when it is your child.

Dr. Starks will take the time to discuss everything you want and need to know about your child’s health. She will walk you through the entire treatment process in order to relieve your worries as much as possible. Our goal is to provide reassurance to her fellow parents that their children are in capable, experienced, and caring hands.

We are always here for you.

Being a parent can be overwhelming. We are here to make sure that there is one less thing to worry about.

With two sons who are now grown up, Dr. Starks has had personal experience raising children. She knows how you fret about your child’s safety, schoolwork, friends, behavior, diet, happiness... the list goes on. Our goal is to provide such excellent care that of all the concerns you have for your child, their health will not be one of them.

Secure Patient Portal

Our completely secure patient portal is a great way to get the latest information concerning your child.

Starks Pediatrics maintains an online patient portal for all existing patients so you can securely access information about your child's health 24/7, request prescription refills, schedule appointments, update forms, and more.

We are also available by phone (704-717-2826) for any questions, concerns, or other issues you might have, though we ask that you reserve after hours calls to emergencies only.
