It’s a rare treasure for a husband and wife team to share the common goal of running a family and a business together. However, the Brownridges have done just that. Their common goal is to provide the highest quality care to their patients.
From the opening of Brownridge Pediatrics in 1989, Drs. Seth and Earline Brownridge have emphasized providing quality care. The husband and wife team knew from the beginning that socioeconomic status can affect the care a patient receives. After finishing their training at a top ranked pediatric residency program, they vowed to bring the same high quality care to all patients they serve. However, their joint path did not start with the opening of the practice.
The Brownridges’ love of medicine dates back to their pre-medical days in the biology department at Washington University. After graduating in 1978, Earline attended medical school at the University of Missouri-Columbia, while Seth completed his medical education at Washington University. The couple married in 1981 and served their residencies in pediatric medicine at St. Louis Children’s Hospital from 1982 to 1985. While on the brink of their medical career they began their family. They have three beautiful children.
Over the past twenty years, the Brownridges have watched both their practice and family grow while maintaining the quality care they cherished since the beginning. By providing a very relaxed atmosphere, they allow plenty of time to communicate with parents and children about their health care needs. 2005 was a landmark year with the opening of their new facility at the North County Professional Building. Among the offices’ features are state of the art, safe and child friendly waiting rooms with separate areas for sick and well patients. This theme continues with separate windows for checking in and checking out and separately designated examination rooms. They’ve also introduce after hours services from 5-9 PM, Monday through Friday which is available to the entire St. Louis pediatric population.
Drs. Seth and Earline constantly strive to improve their services at Brownridge Pediatrics, where quality health care begins.
