Kumar Child Clinic was established by Dr. Puneet Kumar in 2008 with a mission to provide exceptional Child Health Services to the population of subcity of Dwarka (New Delhi) and beyond.

Like most Child Clinics, we have a comprehensive vaccination program and all the latest vaccines are available. the standard immunization schedule, as recommended by Indian Academy of Pediatrics is followed with no arbitrary alterations. When different variants of a vaccine are available (For example, PREVENAR 13® & SYNFLORIX® for PCV vaccine), Dr. Puneet Kumar makes it a point to explain pros and cons in detail (and not just the cost difference) to help parents in taking the decision regarding different options available. Vaccines get unparalleled care at Kumar Child Clinic. The refrigerator for vaccines has 24/7 power back up to maintain cold chain of highest standard and let the vaccines retain the potency that is intended. Moreover, visits to Kumar Child Clinic for vaccination are not just for vaccination. These Well Baby Visits are optimally utilized to provide guidance regarding diet, parenting issues, promotion of physical exercise & healthy lifestyle, prevention of injuries/ accidents, busting of common myths in the society, etc. Due care is given to management of development/ behavioral issues like potty training resistance, sleep difficulties, temper tantrums, food fussiness, breath holding spells, etc. Age-appropriate instructions, anticipatory guidance and even advice on age-appropriate toys is routine in these Well-Baby Check ups. The idea is to get involved with parents to help these little ones to reach their true potential!
Rapidly changing socio-cultural fabric with nuclear families, working parents, long working hours and ever-growing expectations are adding pressure to young parents today. Kumar Child Clinic goes an extra mile to send timely SMS/ E-mails for not only missed vaccinations but also to inform about Pulse Polio Day, Disease outbreak and even clinic holiday. The idea is to share some burden of young parents.
