Please join us in welcoming Dr. Joseph Lammert to Community Choice Pediatrics

Here at Community Choice Pediatrics, I’m a general pediatrician where, every day, I see kids and work with them and their families. Our team’s focus is on healthy kids, helping whatever sick kid who walks in our door get better!

As a new parent myself, I can relate to the challenges, joys, and questions of having a new child at home. I enjoy walking alongside my patients and families through their experiences. I like to tell them they’re writing a story — and that their individual needs and circumstances make the story uniquely their own. As their pediatrician, it’s my great privilege to be a part of their stories.

One of my favorite things about working here is the collegiality. I haven’t been here that long, but the teamwork truly stands out as we work together, providing the best care we can for our families.

If I weren’t a physician, I think I’d be a teacher. One of the things I love about pediatrics is that a lot of what we do is educating kids and their families. It’s an important part of the care we provide, and I strive to do it well!

Outside of work, I enjoy exploring Kansas City with my family (wife, son, and 75-pound pup Tucker), staying caught up with my Missouri Tigers, St. Louis Cardinals, and newly adopted team, the Kansas City Chiefs. Whenever I can, I catch an episode of The Office or get outside for a long run, walk, hike, or bike ride. Sometimes you can find me washing dishes … but unloading the dishwasher? That’s my least favorite chore!

A fun fact about me: Pizza is one of my favorite foods. I love all kinds — Chicago-style, New York-style, and St. Louis-style from Imo’s is definitely a top favorite. Another favorite is Shakespeare’s Pizza in Columbia, MO. (I discovered you can buy their frozen pizzas here in KC!) As you can tell, I don’t think I’ve ever turned down a slice.
