OAKHURST – As parents and guardians in the Oakhurst community welcome and raise the youngest members of their families, they have available to them the expertise of the board-certified pediatric team at Adventist Health Medical Office – Oakhurst.

Taking a collaborative approach, the pediatric team includes pediatrician Linne Curtis, MD, and pediatric nurse practitioner Carol Cramer, CPNP-PC, who represent more than 30 years of experience in pediatric care. From minor illnesses to chronic conditions, the pediatric team provides families with immediate medical attention and consultations, when needed, without the need to travel outside of Oakhurst. The team also collaborates closely with pediatric specialists located in Fresno, when additional specialty attention may be necessary.

“Our children are the most important thing in our lives, and we know how scary it can be when they fall ill,” said Curtis. “We’re dedicated to not only providing accurate diagnoses, but also helping patients and their families feel at ease when they are in our care.”

As residents of the foothill community, the pediatric team understands first-hand the need for healthcare in Oakhurst, as well as the conditions that most afflict children.

Some common reasons to visit a pediatric provider include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Vomiting or diarrhea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Rash
  • Cold or flu
  • Minor injuries
  • School or sports physicals
  • Well-child exams

In addition to medical care, the compassionate atmosphere at Adventist Health Medical Office – Oakhurst encourages the development and well-being of pediatric patients, providing the support children need to live healthy lives and fulfill their potential.

“Kids, particularly the little ones, are overwhelmingly frightened in a medical setting,” said Cramer. “My goal is to have them walk away feeling as good as possible about their experience; it’s a slam-dunk when they leave with a smile on their face.”

The pediatric team is welcoming new patients and may be reached at Adventist Health Medical Office – Oakhurst, located at 48677 Victoria Lane, in Oakhurst. More information and appointments are available by calling (559) 683-2711 or visiting OakhurstCare.com.
