About SEARK Children's Clinic

SEARK Children's Clinic is an outstanding health resource proudly serving families in and around Monticello, Arkansas. Under the leadership of James Atkins, MD, FAAP, this outstanding pediatric clinic delivers highly personalized, compassionate care and is the only clinic in Monticello focused solely on children’s health.

At SEARK Children’s Clinic, Dr. Atkins takes the time to truly get to know the kids and families who rely on him for care. As health services continue to move toward huge conglomerates and rushed, impersonal office visits, he chose to shape his practice as a single-provider pediatric clinic, ensuring he has the time and resources needed to build lasting patient/practitioner bonds. 

Services include well child visits, delivering screenings, immunizations, and all the preventive care kids need to thrive. When unexpected illnesses or injuries develop, compassionate sick visits offer a swift path toward relief. 

Onsite lab services, hearing and vision screening, and minor procedures are also available through the comfortable and welcoming office environment. Telemedicine services ensure families can get the care they need even if they can’t make it to the office location.  

Mental health services support kids and families faced with issues like depression, anxiety, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The experienced medical professionals at the practice have completed the training to become a Community-Based Autism Liaison and Treatment (CoBALT) clinic, which can help reduce wait times for kids who need screening for autism spectrum disorder and other developmental conditions.  

Grow Happy! Come grow with us. Parents in southeast Arkansas who are searching for a warm and welcoming pediatric clinic should take a few moments to schedule an initial visit using the simple online booking page. SEARK Children’s Clinic can also be reached by phone.  

We accept most insurance providers. If you have specific questions regarding your coverage, please contact us for additional information.

We were so appreciative that the clinic could get us in for a bilirubin test on our newborn. To get this test done on the specific day was the only way we were able to bring her home. Then the staff called us that afternoon as soon as the test results came back to give us the treatment plan going forward. This is absolutely perfect customer service!
