Never Worry About Your Child Alone

At Small Town Pediatrics everyone is committed to providing top-quality medical care in a small and highly personal practice setting. Our goal is to help all our Small Town kids achieve their best start toward their healthiest and happiest life.  Our philosophy is that you should never worry about your child alone.

“I’m always pleasantly surprised by the amount of face time we get with Dr. Mark and how he connects with my children (to the degree he can!). He creates a very comfortable, relaxing atmosphere to talk with my teens and can sense when the littles are ready to go and it’s time to wrap things up! :)’

“Dr. Mark has been my child’s doctor since birth, and I cannot recommend him enough! So friendly, informative, and reliable! We love the family feel to Small Town Pediatrics!”

“Great. Responsive, take the time to answer questions”

“The 3 things I appreciate:

They don’t rush through appointments

They involve you in the decision making for the care plan

They return texts and calls in a timely manner”

Everyone at Small Town Pediatrics is dedicated to providing top-quality medical care in a small and highly personal practice setting with a goal to help all our kids achieve their best start toward a healthy and happy life of the highest possible quality.

“I just want to say how refreshing it is to have my child’s doctor be so PRESENT and care so much. I recommend Dr. Helm to everyone looking for a Pediatrician.”
