Since its opening in 1987, Dr. Davé has been welcoming patients into his practice from the moment of their birth into young adulthood. Dr. Davé's commitment and experience has made him an invaluable resource to the health and safety of pediatric patients within the community. In 2016, the Pediatrics Center welcomed his daughter, a family nurse practitioner, to the practice.
Both providers value and practice preventative medicine in an effort to keep your child healthy during their growing years. The Pediatrics Center is committed to providing compassionate care from routine wellness exams to acute or chronic illnesses.
The Pediatrics Center has had several locations in the past. The current location is near to OSF Saint Elizabeth hospital. The office is east of Saint Elizabeth hospital on Starfire Drive, behind the Choices building. The office is open five days a week. We work with all insurance companies, including Illinois Medicaid. New patients are always welcomed.
This year we are offering same day walk-in school and sports physicals from 5:00 - 7:00 PM Monday and Thursdays to our current patients. Clinics will start July 17 and go until the end of August. These visits provide us with the opportunity to maintain continuity of care and update the child on important immunizations all in one visit. At the same visit we address and reevaluate the child’s past medical, family history, and current medications.
