Welcome to Vidalia Pediatric Clinic
Finding the right medical home for your child is an important part of setting them up for a healthy life. The team at Vidalia Pediatric Clinic offers comprehensive pediatric care and is proud to be the children’s health care resource of choice for many families in and around Vidalia, Georgia.
The practice truly embraces a team approach, making the most of the training, skills, and experience of each team member. From the practitioners who provide direct care to the support professionals who keep the office running smoothly, the Vidalia Pediatric Clinic team is an integrated whole.
Vidalia Pediatric Clinic was originally founded by Dr. Larry E. Smith. Dr. Smith spent considerable time and effort building the practice and was once the only pediatrician serving Vidalia. He expanded his practice in 1986 and enjoyed working with local families until he was diagnosed with leukemia in 1994.
After Dr. Smith’s passing, his practice changed hands twice, but continued to grow and make a positive impact on more and more area families. Today, Vidalia Pediatric Clinic works in partnership with a sister clinic, Tots to Teens Medical Center. This partnership allows the practitioners and leadership of both offices to better serve families who entrust these clinics with the health and wellness of their children.
From routine well child exams and vaccines to managing complex health issues and delivering outstanding acute care, Vidalia Pediatric Clinic is here to help. Parents who are searching for an outstanding practitioner to guide their child’s health from birth through young adulthood should schedule an appointment today to meet the Vidalia Pediatric Clinic team. Scheduling is available online, by phone, or in person and takes just moments to complete.

About Vidalia Pediatric Clinic
Vidalia Pediatric Clinic was founded by the late Dr. Larry E. Smith in 1983. For three years, Dr. Larry Smith worked long, hard hours building this practice, seeing patients in the office and at the hospital as a solo practitioner and the only pediatrician in Vidalia. In 1986, Dr. Smith began welcoming other pediatricians and practitioners to help him serve the pediatric needs. Dr. Smith continued to work and build Vidalia Pediatric Clinic up until he was diagnosed with Leukemia in 1994 and passed away in January of 1995.
Continuing Dr. Smith's Legacy
“Dr. Pete” Lafuente took over the clinic after the death of Dr. Larry Smith. In November 1997, after Dr. Pete’s decision to continue practicing as a contracted physician, Lisa Smith purchased Vidalia Pediatric Clinic. For over two decades, Lisa has been contracting physicians and mid-level practitioners to serve the pediatric patients of Vidalia and surrounding counties. In 2004, due to the growing demand for pediatric care, Vidalia Pediatric Clinic opened a sister clinic, Tots To Teens Medical Center, in Vidalia. With the help of great physicians and practitioners, such as Dr. Etta Boss-Cole and Sam Oates, we have been able to continue the legacy of Dr. Larry Smith.
