Bradenton's Premier Physicians for Children and Adolescents

Welcome to Scarano & Taylor Pediatrics


We provide comprehensive medical care for children and teenagers from birth until their twenty-first birthday.

Our focus is on promoting excellent health for your child. We offer expertise in disease and accident prevention, developmental progress, nutrition, fitness and mental wellness.

Our services include: Well child examinations, treatment of acute illness and minor injuries, newborn circumcision, management of chronic disease and conditions, assessment and treatment for Attention Deficit Disorder, developmental screening/management of developmental disorders, and nutritional assessment/dietary counseling. Please refer to our services page for more information.

Our physicians are board-certified in pediatrics and maintain hospital staff appointments at Manatee Memorial Hospital and Lakewood Ranch Medical Center. They are appointed to the faculty of Florida State University College of Medicine and enjoy instructing medical students.

Patients are seen in our office by appointment. Same-day appointments are available for acute problems.

Our physicians are available to return telephone calls after office hours for urgent medical issues.


We ask that individuals with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 exposure or infection refrain from entering our office in order to avoid exposing other patients and their families, including our medically fragile patients.  If you have suspected or confirmed COVID=19 exposure or infection and require medical care, our physicians may conduct an examination in your motor vehicle.

Telemedicine visits are available for appropriate medical concerns and medication management.  We offer COVID-19 testing (PCR methodology; results typically available in two business days) to established patients.  Our physicians have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Upon arrival to the office, check in at the front desk.  You may choose to occupy the waiting room or wait in your vehicle.  Notify the receptionist if anyone attending the office has been exposed to COVID-19 or had positive COVID test in the past ten days.   

As always, our patients may reach our on-call physician when the office is not open by dialing the main office number: 941-755-0800.

Seasonal influenza vaccines are now available and are recommended for all individuals six months of age and older.  Influenza infection is common and may cause severe illness, even in healthy persons.  Seasonal influenza vaccination greatly reduces the risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death due to influenza infection.  Please contact our office to schedule your influenza vaccine.


Good news for young adults!  In response to patient demand, we will continue to provide care for patients until their twenty-first birthday.
