Where We Started

Dr. Howard Rice founded Town & Country Pediatrics as a solo practice on Chicago’s North Side in 1972.

Thanks to our loyal Town & Country families, we’ve grown since then. Our twenty-one physicians, three certified nurse practitioners, licensed clinical psychologist and two child/adolescent and family therapists see patients seven days a week, with expanded hours, at three Chicagoland locations.
