We are proud to announce that South Lake Pediatrics' Michael Garvis and John Paulson were both named a "Top Doctor" by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine for 2017. We are inspired by their hard work and compassion for children and their families.

The magazine recognizes doctors, nominated by their peers across the metro area, for their exceptional care. Mpls. St. Paul Magazine's Top Doctors rankings are determined by a survey sent to 5,000 physicians and nurses in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. Survey participants are asked to nominate one or more doctors (excluding themselves) whom they would choose if they or a loved one were seeking medical care. The candidates who made the final list were evaluated on indicators of peer recognition, professional achievement, and disciplinary history.

Congratulations, Dr. Garvis and Dr. Paulson!

We're excited to announce that we've been named a 2017 Star Tribune Top Workplace! A big thank you goes out to all of our dedicated staff who helped to make this happen.

Dr. Michael Garvis was featured in the June 2016 Plymouth Magazine in an article about summer safety tips.

Two of our nurse practitioners, Maria McGannon and Liz Hass were featured in an article about autism in the January 2016 issue of Minnesota Parent magazine. Read the article here: http://issuu.com/minnesotaparent/docs/mn_parent_0116/40

10/29/15-MN Department of Health and MN Community Measurement released first-time results from two new clinic measures that found most clinics are successfully providing lifestyle counseling to obese children, but less than half are screening adolescents for depression.

South Lake Pediatrics is above average for both measures but is a TOP PERFORMER for Mental Health Screening!!

Our results for these 2 measures for reference:

Childhood Overweight Counseling – 90% (avg score =  85%)

Mental Health Screening – 99% (avg score =  40%) - WE ARE THE TOP PERFORMER FOR THIS MEASURE!!

Dr. Laura Saliterman was quoted twice in the article.

2014-Minnesota Community Measurement (MNCM) report, South Lake Pediatrics was one of the state’s four top-performing pediatric groups. South Lake Pediatrics achieved above-average ratings more frequently than other clinics on three of the five clinical measures reported: optimal asthma care—65 percent, compared with the statewide average of 24 percent; treatment of colds—97 percent, compared with the statewide average of 89 percent; and sore throat testing—97 percent, compared with the statewide average of 88 percent. South Lake also scored higher than the state average of 73 percent for immunizations. The report recognized South Lake Pediatrics for making the greatest improvement since 2009 dates of service in childhood immunizations, jumping more than 12 percentage points.

Minnesota Community Measurement is an independent, non-profit, quality measurement and reporting organization. Read the full report at www.mncm.org.

South Lake Pediatrics was the recipient of Medica's 2012 "Raising the Bar" innovations award, which highlights the work of provider organizations that are improving quality, increasing patient satisfaction, and ultimately decreasing the cost of health care. We were awarded in November of 2012 for designing a depression care management program for children in our clinics, fostering collaboration between primary care and mental health providers to achieve timely, appropriate mental health care. As a result, the hospitalization rate for depression was 61% lower than outside the program, with a rate of 3.4% vs. 8.8% in a control group.
