Gvozden Pediatrics was founded in 1996 by husband and wife Andre Gvozden, MD and Cathy Gvozden, CRNP. For over 25 years they have strived to create and maintain a pediatric office that has a small-practice and personal touch while adhering to the most up-to-date medicine to keep your children feeling comfortable and well cared for. We pride ourselves in knowing our patients and their families.

We participate with most major insurance plans. We will submit claims for participating insurances. Please see our billing section for a current list of the insurance companies we participate with. Yearly updates of registrations and insurance cards help to keep our charts current. Please bring your insurance card with you to each visit. Copayments are expected at the time of service in order to avoid late fees.
Gvozden Pediatrics requires our patients to follow a standard vaccine schedule unless otherwise required for strict medical reasons. We do not allow alternative or "broken-up" vaccine schedules. COVID and Flu vaccines are recommended but not required at this time.
For several years, issues related to vaccinating children has been a favorite topic in the media. It has been a sure way of fueling controversy, creating TV ratings, selling newspapers, etc… Recently, “Googl-ing” has instilled in parents undue fear and anxiety through misinformation and often fabricated data about vaccines. One of the best ways to protect our children and patients’ health is through vaccination.
