The Practice


Our practice was founded in 1979 by the late Dr. Frank Vaughters right here in the heart of Kansas City. We have spent the last 37 years dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our patients from birth to young adulthood. It is our privilage to offer primary care services as well as illness management. We have a cooperative relationship with Children's Mercy Hospital, which has been ranked one of the nation's best children's hospitals in America by U.S. News and World Report.
