4405 River Oaks Blvd.Fort Worth, TX 76114817-624-1770Driving directions
When your child has a cold, fever, or cough, we're here, ready to treat them. And the sooner you bring them in for an appointment, the sooner they get back to playing or school. While you're here, we'll take the time to sit with the whole family and discuss your worries, instruct you in how to give medicine or care for a wound. We'll even help you create a healthy eating and exercise plan to help prevent the illnesses that come from obesity, like diabetes. And we'll do it all in a language you understand. Many of our doctors and staff are fluent in more than one language, and we have interpreters available at no charge to make sure that you are comfortable and understand clearly your child's treatment plan.
What we offer:
Immunizations: Our plan of care is to immunize every child by following the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
School Physicals: We provide school and sports physicals. Please call for an appointment.
We're more than the Neighborhood Clinic, we're here to be your family pediatrician. Our doctors are very special people who are dedicated to helping your children get well and stay well. From tiny little newborns all the way to the teen years, we help families get through illness, prevent future illness through healthy nutrition and exercise, and even care for behavior problems before they get out of control.

Dr. Nicholas grew up in Portland, Oregon. She received her undergraduate degree in music from Linfield College in 2005, and graduated from Oregon Health and Science University School of Medicine in 2009. She always knew she wanted to work in pediatrics, and completed her residency at Children’s Medical Center, Dallas in 2012. She enjoys getting to know the families at her clinic, watching the children grow up over time, and building a relationship with them and their parents. Some of her medical interests include childhood nutrition, preventive care, and parent/patient education. She strongly believes in the importance of childhood vaccinations.
She met her husband Greg in college, and they have been married since 2010. Although they are both transplants to Texas, they love their "adopted" home state. Some of Dr. Nicholas's hobbies include photography, craft projects, music, running, travel, and learning Spanish.
Please bring your insurance card and your child's shot record. Arriving 15 minutes early will allow you time to complete paperwork and keep your child's appointment on schedule.
Checkup was designed with parents in mind, offering quick content that you can use in your daily lives. Below you will find helpful, educational information for parents, sourced by experts at Cook Children's.
ConstipationConstipation is a very common problem among kids, and it usually occurs because a child's diet doesn't include enough fluids and fiber. In most cases, simple changes can help kids go.
Common ColdWith kids getting up to eight colds a year, this contagious viral infection is the most common infectious disease in the United States and the top reason kids visit the doctor and miss school.
FeversAlthough it can be frightening when a child's temperature rises, fever itself causes no harm and can actually be a good thing - it's often the body's way of fighting infections.
Feeding and Spitting upFind out what the experts have to say.
SleepHow do you get kids to bed through the cries, screams, avoidance tactics, and pleas? What if you're awakened in the middle of the night? And how much sleep do kids need?
DietWith all the focus on dieting, how do you figure out what's healthy and what isn't?
AsthmaLearn more about your child's asthma and how to manage it.
Sometimes kids need long-term care, or will heal better in a familiar setting. We provide quality, patient-centered care in the comfort of home. Led by a clinical team with vast experience in pediatrics, our visiting nurses have a minimum of five years of pediatric experience and our skilled visiting nurses are PALS certified.
