Bard & Didriksen Pediatrics
Glen Carbon / Edwardsville, Illinois Pediatricians
The founding physicians of Bard and Didriksen Pediatrics have been in practice in the Edwardsville / Glen Carbon area for over 20 years. Since then, we have grown to a large multi-physician practice with five board certified pediatricians, specializing in the care of infants, children, and adolescents.
We offer premier pediatric care in a clean, comfortable and professional office setting. We have both male and female physicians.
Updates & News
Bard and Didriksen Pediatrics is able to do Covid-19 antigen testing of sick patients during the first five days of their symptoms. Out tests are not appropriate for people without symptoms. We will be happy to order those tests for your child offsite.
As we move to open the state of Illinois some things at Bard and Didriksen will change and some will stay the same.
What is the same?
We are here and ready to provide you and your family with great medical care.
We are scheduling well child exams, school and sports physicals.
We are disinfecting our exam rooms after every patient.
We are regularly disinfecting our waiting rooms and high traffic areas.
Our staff and all persons over the age of 2 entering our building are required to wear a mask.
Both parents are welcome at visits, and siblings too as needed, but we ask to try to limit the number of people joining the patient to be seen as able.
We are offering telehealth visits through doxy.me for non well child appointments.
What is different?
The check in process for the afternoon sick visits will now be over the phone while waiting in their vehicle. This process is to ensure the separation of all well child and sick appointments.
We here at Bard and Didriksen Pediatrics want to thank all our wonderful families for their support and we are excited to see you this summer.

Does my child have tantrums and what can I do to help them?
Self-expression is important to growth, self-esteem and confidence. But sometimes this self-expression can turn into an explosive typhoon in the form of a tantrum, when it seems like the only response is to batten down the hatches and weather the storm. So what is a...
