Ahwatukee Foothills News recently named TLC Pediatrics’ Dr. Diane Matsumoto the Best Pediatrician in Ahwatukee. Thank you to everyone who voted for Dr. Matsumoto. She’s honored to receive this accolade.

Dr. Diane Matsumoto has practiced medicine in the Valley for about 30 years. But, she considers her practice – TLC Pediatrics – her pride and joy.

She founded and opened the office in 2004 to fulfill her dream of practicing pediatrics in a small, intimate setting where patient care comes first.

Also on staff are Dr. Noelle Miller and Dr. Khristina Ramirez.

The clinic treats children, from newborns to age 21, of all ability levels.

Matsumoto is committed to vaccinating children.

The waiting areas are stocked with games to keep kids busy. Separate lobbies are available for kids who are sick and kids who are in for a well-care appointment.

The clinic is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, but a nurse is on call after hours, as are the three physicians. Doctors see all of the patients, not physician assistants or nurse practitioners.

TLC Pediatrics operates a triage service for after-hours needs.
