Services in a nutshell

More about us

Willow Pediatrics and Lactation is a concierge practice with expertise in integrative pediatrics and breastfeeding medicine. We care for newborns to young adults. Our personalized care is truly tailored to the needs of your family, replacing assembly-line medicine and one-size-fits all mentality. By perfectly blending old-fashioned values and service with the most modern medicine, we have created a pediatric practice like no other!

Dr. Price’s vision for how she believes healthcare should be delivered is the driving force in everything that we do.

Limited practice size: In an era where primary healthcare is becoming increasingly rushed and impersonal, Dr. Price limits her practice size to cultivate a true relationship with your family.

Pediatrician in the family: You ARE family at Willow, which is why you have direct access to Dr. Price 24/7 via email, text messaging, cell phone or video chatting.

Customized, longer appointments: Appointments with Dr. Price are scheduled for 1 hour and if needed “off-hour” appointments, including evenings, weekends, and holidays are available.

Continuity of care and advocacy services: We treat every child like our own, which is why Dr. Price cares for your child at EVERY appointment and personally assists each family in navigating the complex healthcare system.

Breastfeeding medicine: Dr. Price is the ONLY physician in the city of Chicago with credentialing as an MD/IBCLC.

Dispensary: The most common pediatric medications are dispensed directly to families.

Educational classes: We invest in the most up-to-date information from leaders in the field for our families.

Eco-friendly: Rest easy knowing we take care of your child and the environment by using only toxic-free products.

Our services

Integrative Pediatric Care: Integrative medical care means that we consider the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a child’s health. We create a customized treatment plan for your child utilizing an array of scientific and alternative disciplines.

Comprehensive Lactation Care: Our practice offers comprehensive, evidence-based lactation care in a supportive and non-judgmental manner to help families achieve their infant feeding goals.

Milk bank: Our partnership with the Mothers’ Milk Bank of the Western Great Lakes ensures families have access to donor breastmilk. We are passionate about babies receiving breastmilk, which is why families can pick up donor milk directly at our office.
