Parents Tell us who They Think are the Best Grand Rapids Pediatricians

My children love their pediatrician so much that they will even brave the “horrific” shots (they are petrified of shots) if it means they get to see their favorite doc. He’s a wise man, reassuring, and makes the kids feel like they’re his favorite patients.

If you have kids, then fevers, rashes, and injuries are probably the norm in your house. Kids get sick. They get hurt.

Voted Top Pediatrician

Dr. Jeffrey Mantia at Grandville Pediatrics

Dr. Jeffrey Mantia, Grandville Pediatrics

Grandville Pediatrics was founded in 2001 with the idea that a small independent practice could provide high-quality patient care for infants, children, and teenagers and more quickly implement the ideas of its physicians, nurse practitioners and support staff.

We believe that children are not little adults. Their treatment involves specialized pediatric knowledge and care, closer follow-up, a higher dedication to care of the entire patient and an increased level of provider and nurse involvement. We are committed to maintaining this standard.

We believe that patients and parents deserve thorough explanations about growth and development as well as illnesses, behavioral/developmental issues, and their management. Our providers and staff will take the time to get to know you and your children and respond to your concerns.

We have worked hard to maintain a personal atmosphere where you and your children feel comfortable and are remembered by name. We are also small enough that you will know all of us well. The best part of our job is the relationships that we build with our patient families over time!

Our office maintains close relationships with local pediatric specialists and is well respected by the staff of Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital and local obstetricians.

We look forward to meeting you and your family!

“Love this group!!! Our oldest is 15 and we started with Dr. Mantia when she was born. I love the time, friendliness, and caring everyone gives.”” ~Parent of patient at Grandville Pediatrics
