We do things differently and that makes all the difference in the world.

Providing amazing pediatric care is just the beginning of our story.

In 2008, after 15 years in practice we decided to start something new. We wanted families to have a different kind of experience in the office: comfortable, welcoming, family-focused care that empowers parents and children to take control of their health and wellness.

We have built an amazing team of pediatricians, nurse practitioners, RNs, MAs, billing and front office staff as well as a lactation specialist all dedicated to partnering with you to provide top notch care in a non-traditional setting.

Stop by for a visit. We look forward to meeting you and your family!

Dr Yusra Abidi

I was born in India and moved to New Jersey with my family when I was just three years old. I received my undergraduate degree from Rutgers University in New Jersey, and my MD from the American University of Antigua! After medical school I completed my residency training at Beaumont Children's Hospital. While in medical school I met my soulmate--a Michigan boy who soon became my husband. We now have two beautiful children. Two strong willed, intelligent, and tirelessly affectionate toddlers who have given me the opportunity to learn patience, sacrifice, and hard work. I am elated to join the phenomenal team at Birmingham Pediatrics! Caring for children is my passion--and the care that I provide to every family is exactly what I would expect a pediatrician to provide for my own.


Office Manager
My name is Stephanie S. I've worked in pediatrics since 1998. What I like most about my job (aside from tormenting Tom at the front desk:)) is getting to know our patients and families, interacting with the kids and watching them grow. Never a dull moment when working with children.

I grew up in Waterford, MI and lived there until moving to Brandon Township 10 years ago. I live there with my husband and two boys. We love sports, especially soccer and baseball. Spare time is spent taking care of our mini farm with 10 chickens , a dog, a rabbit, a guinea pig and a garden.

I love them!! Can't wait to see you in the office!
