Newborns are a category of their own! Pediatricians specialize in the medical care of newborns. From well checks and lactation support, to the unfortunate event of an illness, it is important that your baby be evaluated by a Pediatrician. 

Know before Due-day! Studies have shown that learning about breastfeeding and normal newborn growth BEFORE delivery increases your chances of succeeding in breastfeeding your baby. Dr. Irene has had additional training in Europe in lactation support, is a certified Neonatal Resuscitation Provider and part time hospitalist for Maui Memorial Medical Center. Seeing the difficulties new parents have those first 2-3 days until getting into the Pediatrician's office, she has put together a course that covers the basic things you need to know when going home with your newborn. 

This complimentary 1 hour class is ideal for first time parents. It covers what to expect in the first days as a new parent, normal growth, breastfeeding basics, supply issues, maternal medication management, COVID19 in pregnancy and breastfeeding and how your Pediatrician can support you through lactation difficulties.  In addition, expecting parents will have the opportunity to have a Q&A session with the pediatrician.

This service is free for all our enrolled families. 

We are the only Pediatric Practice on Maui affiliated with Kapiolani Medical Center, with direct access to referrals, follow ups for children with chronic medical conditions and your child's medical records. We work closely with multiple specialties to coordinate a multidisciplinary team for your child's needs. 

The number of infants born premature has grown in the US in the past decades and survival rates are constantly improving. These children require additional exams and follow ups which we make sure are monitored closely, in cooperation with Kapiolani Women's and Children's Hospital. 

Our office has direct access to your child's chart through our affiliations with Kapiolani Medical Center and Maui Memorial Medical Center. Dr. Irene is also a part time Hospitalist for Maui Memorial Medical Center.

By appointment only. (Swabs done and sent to lab, result in 24 hours). We obtain specimens for Strep tests, urine/vaginal tests and skin cultures. 

For our existing patients.

Coming soon.

After seeing multiple skin infections in our young patients, we decided to offer this service. We use a Medical Ear piercing system (Blomdahl Medical Ear piercing- Made in Sweden). The Blomdahl Medical Ear Piercing System is only available to medical professionals in the U.S.A. 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. 

Ages: 3-4 months and >5 years old (if the child is cooperative and excited to have her ears pierced!)

Requires a separate appointment. 

This service is not covered by insurance. This is a cash only service for our established patients. Payment at the time of service. 

Price: depending on the earrings starting from $99 . Price includes earrings, prescription numbing cream, procedure, pre and after care wipes, follow up if needed. Signed consent by the parent is required. 

Text us via Klara for more information. 

Our families have access to their children's medical chart 24/7. 

A separate chart is offered to teenagers once they turn 14 to access personal information in their medical records and to email their Pediatrician directly through our HIPAA compliant portal. We have partnered with myHealthPersona, a emotional health app to help Teenagers monitor their wellbeing. 

We use Klara, a HIPAA compliant texting system. Secure testing is not for emergencies. Complex or new medical problems communicated through texting, may require an appointment or may be billed to insurance. 

Fill out all required forms for registration, pre-visit screenings and visit questionnaires on your phone, tablet or computer. We use Klara and Jotforms. 

Through our secure Telehealth platform/ patient portal Athena. You will receive a text or email with a link, prior to your scheduled appointment.

Happy Parents

    "I was so impressed with Dr. Irene Papaconstadopolous. Everything is at her practice is streamlined and organized. Paperwork all sent beforehand in an easy to use digital format. Communication was clear and office easy to access. Went for our 18 month old’s check up and it was the most time I have ever been able to spend with a doctor! She even administered the vaccines. She was thorough, friendly, and creative in approach to making my toddler comfortable and engaged. So happy to have a competent, friendly, organized, and WONDERFUL pediatrician on Maui. Such a blessing. Mahalo!"

    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!"
