Practice Announcements

Medical Ear Piercing

Wayfaring Pediatrics is proud to offer Medical Ear Piercing to both members and non-members of the practice. In contrast to the mall or parlor setting, a medical office can offer a comfortable and private experience for your child to get his / her ears pierced. We use the Blomdahl system which boasts a simple and sterile procedure to piercing.

The piercing posts are made of medical grade plastic or titanium, eliminating the risk of nickel sensitization. Call or email for more information or to schedule an appointment: info@wayfaringpediatrics.com

After a rough pregnancy and finally welcoming our daughter into the world I felt lost. I was worried for her development and stressed because I felt like we needed a pediatrician who would really LISTEN, CARE, and SUPPORT us. That is Dr. Vukin!

Dr. Vukin goes above and beyond for his patients (and parents). He is both knowledgeable and kind, and demonstrates confidence and comforting disposition. He has taken my concerns seriously in previous experiences, addressed them without overmedicating, provided multiple appropriate options for best care to treat, and invited me to move forward with what I felt most comfortable with in each case.

Wayfaring Pediatrics is everything I would want from a pediatrician’s office. Dr. Vukin makes children feel at ease with his quick smile, silly jokes, and calm demeanor. He is very knowledgeable. His clinic is a beautiful space made with children in mind.

Wayfaring Pediatrics has changed this busy moms life! At our old peds office I could never get in for sick visits and always ended up at the urgent care and messaging back and forth for medication refills took days. Dr. Joe is so responsive and my kids love him. He has a great personality and makes children feel like they are in a fun and safe space. I can’t imagine going back to a typical peds office.

About us

Patient Relationships

Wayfaring Pediatrics was born on the premise that the best primary care starts with a relationship. Through direct pediatric care we are able to redefine what is possible and truly embrace what it means to have a collaborative doctor-patient relationship.
