Welcome to Pediatric Specialists.

Pediatric Specialists was founded in 1959 by Robert M. McKey Jr., M.D. and has been at our current location in Coral Gables since that time. The mission of our practice has always been directed at providing a highly personalized level of care in a small practice environment. Our commitment to continuity of care is of utmost importance at our practice, as we feel that greater familiarity between our patients / families and our physicians / staff results in a more conservative approach to healthcare.

In addition to our regular office hours, our doctors have a commitment to being personally available for all after hours emergency calls, in addition to visiting and caring for well newborns at Baptist, South Miami, and Mercy Hospitals. Our onsite laboratory enables us to perform a variety of screening and diagnostic testing as well. In addition, our recent conversion to EMR and social media integration has created access to a variety of health tools and resources for our families.

In summary, Pediatric Specialists is in many ways an old-fashioned practice with modern conveniences. Well into our third generation of patients, we feel fortunate to have had the ability to be partaking in the joy of watching children and their families grow, and look forward to continuing this as our mission in the years to come.
