New office space! July Newsletter!

We are excited to announce that we are officially in our new office space. Please keep this in mind when coming to your future appointments. We are located in the same building (Park Plaza 1300 N. Holopono str KiheiHI 96753), however, we are now in Suite 115 which is downstairs and on the opposite side of the courtyard. We are looking forward to providing care to you in our new location.


Booking physicals

We wanted to send out a friendly reminder to our patients that even though school is out for summer, the new school year is fast approaching. If your child is going to need school/sports forms completed, an appointment for a school physical should be booked as soon as possible. It is standard to give school forms at every well child appointment after the age of 5. For younger ages, please request one, if you need, prior to your appointment.


In order to sign off on school forms we need to have the complete medical record and vaccine history on file. Best practice includes performing a complete chart review prior to every well child visit in order to address any needs the child might have including vaccines that may be due at the time of their appointment. Due to our commitment of providing the best care to our patients we require adequate time to receive and review the records for the health and safety of our patients.

Ear Piercing is back!

We are offering again ear piercing for our established patients. After seeing multiple skin infections in our young patients, we decided to offer this service! We use only Medical Ear piercing system 100 % nickel-free (Blomdahl Medical Ear piercing- Made in Sweden) for ages 3 -4 months and 5 years and older (if the child is cooperative and excited!). 

Traditional ear piercing guns present a genuine health hazard. They can easily transmit blood-borne viruses. The danger is so real that most European countries have banned these instruments. Unfortunately, they are still legal and widely available in the USA. Our system uses single-use, disposable cassettes that eliminate the chance of transmission.

3-4% of the population is born with nickel sensitivity, and 20-25% of people with pierced ears develop some level of nickel allergy/sensitivity. Ear piercing and earrings can cause this condition. The Blomdahl system eliminates this risk by using medical grade ear piercing studs. We also have a complete line of hypoallergenic earrings.

The Whole-Brain Child

12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind

Daniel J. Siegal 

  • ISBN-10 ‏ : ‎ 9780553386691

"A revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children. The authors explain—and make accessible—the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures. The “upstairs brain,” which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. No wonder kids throw tantrums, fight, or sulk in silence. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, you can turn any outburst, argument, or fear into a chance to integrate your child’s brain and foster vital growth."

As always, we are here for you and are honored to provide care to your children. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Have a safe 4th of July and we look forward to seeing you soon in our new space. 

Warmest Aloha!

Dr. Irene

Testimonials

Happy Parents

    Dr. Irene is the kind of doctor United States badly need more of. I took my child to see her for a hard to troubleshoot chronic issue, and I was very surprised that instead of typical in the US approach of prescribing a medicine to treat the symptom and get you out of the door, she took the time to understand medical history, went over each possibility what could have been causing the issue, and proposed a few possible follow-ups how to zero in to the root cause. Her advice was very helpful and produced positive results. I highly recommend Dr. Irene Papaconstadopoulos.

    "I can’t express how grateful I am, as a mother of two young children, to have found such a wonderful pediatrician. Dr. Irene is knowledgeable, accessible, and above all, great with kids! Even though my girls have had to be poked and prodded on occasion, they still love Dr. Irene so much that they get excited to see her again - and that’s saying a lot. If you are looking for a pediatrician who you can trust with your children’s health, who can answer your questions, who gets back to you quickly, and who herself is an amazing mother, then you’ve found her! I’m so glad we have. ❤️"

    We love Dr. Irene with CHAMPS Pediatrics! My two daughters have been seeing her since 2018 and we trust her completely. She's extremely warm, understanding and takes her time to explain and answer any questions that you may have as parents. She is extremely fast with the text replies through the online portal (klara) as well, which is great for those forgotten questions in between visits. Dr. Irene is super sweet and efficient and truly cares about your experience and the welfare of your children. HIGHLY recommended!

    "Dr. Irene is the most caring, gentle, genuine Pediatrician. She is so kind and loving with my boys. She makes them feel so comfortable and they are even excited when we have an appt! She was so quick to respond on the Klara App to communicate with me even during a holiday weekend and answer my questions about my son. She takes time to go over everything and answer all my questions and concerns, every time we've met with her. I've never felt rushed. I highly recommend her! She's been so great caring for my family. I feel so blessed to have been referred to her!! Thank you Dr. Irene, for caring for my kids!"
