Your Child's Health Is Our First Priority

Founded in 1971 by Dr. Ronald Gallucci, University Place Pediatrics Clinic has always strived to offer the best possible care for children. While we have grown with the community over the past 37 years, our pediatricians still offer the personalized physician-directed care you want and expect for your child.

Our clinic offers the traditional consistent doctor/patient relationship, so your child can expect to see the same friendly doctor each time, making going to the doctor more comfortable with familiarity. Our pediatricians will treat your child with experience and compassion, from the first visit forward. They are concerned with keeping your child healthy and happy into young adulthood.

At University Place Pediatric Clinic we offer prompt appointments with our Board Certified Pediatricians to parents in Lakewood, Tacoma and University Place, WA. Our registered nurses provide timely access to advice during clinic hours, and for those urgent night-time concerns, our doctors always personally return your calls.

So, whether you are brand new parents or need an appointment for your busy teen, a University Place Pediatric Clinic Pediatrician will always be available to meet your family’s pediatric needs near Lakewood.
