rtr pediatrics



Effective June  1, 2015, we are located at 30 Germantown Road in Danbury, 06810.  (Germantown Plaza where Rite Aid is located, in between Augie’s #1 Restaurant/Pizzeria and Cat Clinic.)   Our PHONE and FAX numbers have not changed.   

Thank you for growing with us!  We are always accepting new patients, and welcome you.  We participate in HUSKY, AETNA, ANTHEM BC/BS, CIGNA, CONNECTICARE, UNITED HEALTH CARE, and more to follow.  If  you’re considering the use of our services, and would like to stop in and meet us before doing so, we welcome that.  Or, you can always  simply call , register your child/children, and we will meet you at the time of your first appointment with us.  Because of the expansion of the practice, we no longer provide walk-in service.  We do our best to give same day appointments, however.  Give us a call today at 203.628.7891. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you!

Below is a brief greeting from Dr. Paulhus, and then a little more information after that:


The new office is two miles from our former location on West Street – just down the hill from Danbury Hospital.  Whether you already bring your children to us or not, drop in and see our new office.   We’ll gladly give you a tour.   If you’d like a more formal introduction to Dr. Paulhus and the practice, we’d be happy to set up a no-charge appointment  for this purpose.

Getting an appointment is simple, and though it’s great if you have medical records (especially immunization records) at the time of your child’s first appointment, it is not required.  Maybe you’d like to use our services one or more times before deciding if you’d like to stay.  We welcome that.

RTR PEDIATRICS is privately-owned and managed by the founder, Dr. Paulhus.  We are not part of any hospital or corporate organization.  Our goal is to provide excellent, personalized care.  If you do not have health insurance, let us know.  We will work with you and your budget.  No application, proof of eligibility, or proof of income required.  Call us today so we can answer your questions.  As always, we look forward to hearing from you.


Hmmmm … what about that name, “RTR Pediatrics”? 

Dr. Paulhus has great memories (and loads of stories!) of her residency at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital.  When a patient was to be admitted to the hospital from the ER, the interns and residents kept an eye on the dry erase board that contained their patient’s name, diagnosis, and the ward to which they were going. When everything was ready, a big RTR – yes, in big, red letters – was written in the last column, signifying READY TO ROLL, and off the patient went.  Dr. Paulhus loved that term, and continued to use it in post-Yale days.  RTR Pediatrics was the perfect name for the new practice, especially after – thanks be to God – her recovery from a car accident, and a joyous return to medicine.
