COVID-19 Alert & Virtual Telemedicine Visits
Both of our locations remain open during the COVID-19 crisis. To comply with local orders, masks are now mandatory for all visitors over age 2. We are also taking extra precautions, including limiting adults to one per exam room. We now offer virtual telehealth visits for established sick patients to better assist you. Click here to learn more about our precautions and updated hours.
As local cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, we want to make sure you have access to the quickest testing possible for your children. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer in-house testing due to a limited supply of tests with our medical suppliers, but we hope to get them soon. In the meantime, we have called around to find testing sites that will accept patients under 18. Click here for the full list.

Why do moms like you trust Dr. Bou Pediatrics?
My husband and I both work in healthcare and can honestly tell you that Dr. Bou is a great doctor! We recently moved to the Wesley Chapel area and are so happy to have found his new office. We rarely have to wait longer than a few minutes to see him for our appointment. He has great bedside manner and he takes the time to answer all of our questions which is great for this first time Mom. The text reminders about appointments are also very helpful! His front desk staff is very pleasant, and NP Erika is very good too!

What Our Patients Think
"My boyfriend has seen Dr. Bou since childhood and now that we have a child, he has seen him since birth and is the best! I recommend them to anyone! They're all awesome and I've never had a problem getting an appointment or help asking a question is a breeze he makes it so comfortable."

"I absolutely love Dr. Bou. We had somewhat of a scare with my son these past couple of days and Dr. Bou took the time to research what was wrong with him and called me personally to explain it. We went back today so he could explain more, and he answered every question we had and didn't make us feel rushed at all. I cannot express how appreciative we are of everything he has done to help my son."

"Dr. Bou and his staff are amazing as always. The Wesley Chapel office is so new and inviting. We normally go to the Plant City office because we live in town. However, the Wesley Chapel location is very easily accessible for us as well. We will travel to any office as long as we can see Dr. Bou!"
