A family owned company, Peace of Mind Pediatrics is the dream of a former Carl Albert Titan and Oklahoma School of Science and Math alumna.
Dr. Noor Jihan Abdul-Haqq believes that the key to improved health is a focus on provider-patient relationships. A partnership of sorts to keep your child or adolescent happy and well. With this approach, we make taking young family members to the doctor a peaceful experience for residents of the greater Oklahoma City area.
Peace of Mind Pediatrics is hands on in our quest to keep the youth of Oklahoma City healthy.
