Welcome to The Children’s Clinic of Thibodaux, LLC


after-office-hoursIn a community that cares about tradition, we’ve established a tradition of care. Since Doctor F. Michael Smith first opened his pediatric clinic in 1948, we’ve been the place where generations of South Louisiana children have come for health care to grow on.

Our caring tradition is the reason why so many families trust their most valuable possession-the health of their children-to our own family of physicians, nurses and associates.


Upon opening in 1948, Dr. Smith ran the lab himself. In 1952, he hired the first registered lab and x-ray technician. This standard of excellence continues today with its staff of registered nurses and registered medical technologists equipped to perform many screening and diagnostic procedures.

The clinic’s lab is CLIA licensed and COLA accredited receiving COLA’s prestigious “Laboratory Excellence Award” in 2004 and 2006.

This award recognizes labs that display exemplary testing performance.standard-of-excellence

The Children’s Clinic has 24 hour coverage. After office hours, patients can contact the on-call physician through the office phone number. When children need highly specialized care, the Children’s Clinic can arrange consultations with leading pediatric sub- specialists, from neonatologists to neurosurgeons.

Because we want you to be fully informed about your children’s care, we always welcome your questions. Our physician can consult with prospective parents prior to delivery at no charge. We also offer a variety of free educational materials.

It’s true that a lot has changed since Dr. Smith founded the Children’s Clinic; however, our commitment to the families we serve is as strong as ever. For more information about The Children’s Clinic of Thibodaux, LLC please continue browsing our website or call us at 985-447-9045.
