by: REVIEW,TIDINGS PHOTOS: VERN UYETAKE - Badia Jabbour, M.D., checks the ears of her daughter Reem Alharithi, at her pediatic clinic, Kids First Pediatric Clinic, LLC in West Linn.Badia Jabbour, M.D., F.A.A. P. has opened Kids First Pediatric Clinic at 18603 Willamette Drive in West Linn.

This is the second office for the practice; the original office is located on Greenburg Road in Tigard. Jabbour, who lives in West Linn with her husband and children, is board certified in pediatric medicine and has been practicing for more than 23 years. The offices offer a wide range of services for sick and injured children and to help healthy children maintain their wellness. The offices offer same day sick visits and a separate waiting room for sick patients; well child visits, treatment for injuries, immunizations and adoption medical consultations and mother-to-be consultations.

Jabbour is supporting West Linn’s Safe Route to School Initiative, which encourages children to walk or bike to school rather than travel by car. In her Marathon Kids program participants keep track of the miles they walk or bike with a goal of reaching 26.2 miles.

“Each day you walk or bike from home to school or from home to the store, etc., record the distance you walked or biked and have your parent initial next to it,” she said. “Once you have walked 26.2 miles, please bring your log sheet to my office. The first 100 Marathon Kids will receive a $10 gift card.”

Jabbour sets a good example; she enjoys walking, biking and hiking and her own family is active with soccer and other sports.

“We are big on exercise,” she said. “I grew up doing it and have continued. It’s good for people of all ages to do physical activity.” She said she focuses her patients on attaining a healthy lifestyle to avoid weight issues and related health complications.

Jabbour spends mornings in the Tigard office and afternoons from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at the West Linn office. Saturdays she is in the West Linn office from 9 a.m. to noon. She doesn’t mind the commute.

“I love working in both communities,” said Jabbour.

New patients are being accepted at both offices. To learn more about Kids First Pediatric Clinic, visit kids1stclinic.com or call the West Linn office at 503-699-3313.
