A Letter from Dr. Shelly

Welcome to an exciting and innovative pediatric practice that cares for families one child at a time. Senders Pediatrics will be your partner, your cheerleader and your trusted guide through parenthood, one of the most exciting journeys of your life.

We make it fun and exciting for children to come to the pediatrician’s office. From our two story tree house with its 16 foot wavy slide, to the soothing earth tone décor of the exam rooms to the individualized message on the table paper to the toys and books that adorn each room, we strive to make your family’s experience at Senders Pediatrics enjoyable and educational.

We believe in providing cutting edge clinical care. From the way we collect our data and email our prescriptions with the most advanced Electronic Medical Record to our sophisticated technologies and services, we believe that we provide a superior level of care to all of our patients. And we have been recognized for these achievements as evidenced by the annual inclusion in the Best Doctors issue of Cleveland Magazine and recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Patient-Centered Medical Home.

Most importantly, one chooses a pediatrician because of the relationship. For over 25 years, the family that I have built at Senders Pediatrics represents a practice that cares about you and will care about going the extra mile for you and for your child.
