As a mother, have you ever had a pediatrician you could actually trust to care for your babies? If you’ve only had good experiences with doctors, consider yourself lucky. Not all personalities mesh with others, and that typically becomes clear when dealing with health care providers. But, if you’re anything like me, imagine your worst doctor’s appointment and how you left the office in tears because you felt like the doctor didn’t care about your health issues. Now imagine the same thing happening to your baby. That’s right; that’s when mama bear comes out to play.
It’s fairly often that you visit your child’s doctor for annual well-checks, illnesses, and even problems that pop up out of the blue. It’s more than important to know that you have a reliable doctor that both you and your babies know and can trust in their most vulnerable moments.
That said, I’m going to break down a few of the best-rated pediatricians in the Ann Arbor area to help you get an idea of where to start when on the hunt for a new doctor.
Green Tree is one of the most well-known and beloved pediatric offices in Ann Arbor and has a highly dedicated and well-trained team of providers that ensure your family is cared for in any circumstance. The office provides services for various healthcare issues that you might be facing with your child, including immunizations, infant and toddler care, and even anxiety and depression screenings and management. The best part about Green Tree is that they offer free Meet the Doctor appointments for all new patients. Free appointments are truly what we all live for, am I right? You won’t have to commit to one of their providers if you’re not impressed. Always try before you buy.
Their office only maintains a few select pediatricians, but each is exceptional and willing to provide you with outstanding healthcare. Not to mention, their nurses and staff are equally as compassionate and helpful. You can make an appointment with one of their providers here.
Scott Moore, MD, founded Green Tree in 2005 to provide a “warm, welcoming environment” for families in the surrounding areas. Dr. Moore has over 20 years of pediatric care under his belt and serves on plenty of additional committees to offer his services in various ways.

Kylene Willsey, MD, works as a pediatrician with Green Tree Pediatrics and has a specific interest in sports medicine. She provides exceptional service, especially in understanding the impact that concussions have on children and adolescents.
IHA provides some of the most advanced healthcare across all of Michigan. While they provide plenty of healthcare services, pediatrics is among one of their most well-versed. IHA’s pediatricians encourage both physical and environmental health, including guiding parents and guardians to ensure that your children are supported in every sense. From newborn to adolescence, you won’t have to worry while your babies are in IHA’s hands.

While there are many pediatricians at IHA, I’ve found some of the most beloved in Ann Arbor to help you narrow down your options.

Her patients describe her as “down to earth” and “in tune” with their children, with emphasis on her kindness and ability to interact well with children.
