I strongly recommend fully vaccinating kids against preventable diseases on the schedule approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). I do not support nonmedical vaccine exemptions.
I provide comprehensive, family-centered pediatric care for children from birth to 18 years old with a focus on parent and patient education, as well as prevention."– Peter Gyerko, MD
Dr. Gyerko grew up in the Midwest and has lived in Portland, Oregon since arriving here for pediatric training from 1986-1989. He obtained a B.S. in Biology and his M.D. from Indiana University in 1982 and 1986, respectively. He has been Board Certified in Pediatrics since 1991.
Dr. Gyerko is married and has 2 wonderful children. His hobbies include gardening, fly fishing, bicycling, and spending time outdoors.
"Dr. Peter Gyerko has been the family pediatrician for all 3 of my sons, and my granddaughter, now for more years then either of us probably care to admit. From being a comfort to a scared pair of 18 year old new parents, to being there for shots and checkups, and counseling, and emergencies... Dr Gyerko has been family to us and we have followed the practice wherever they went.
I'm only sorry it only took me 24 years to write a review highly recommending Metropolitan Pediatrics."– Chris T.
"Dr. Gyerko is the best!! We’ve been seeing him for seven years, and all three of my children love going to the doctor. Dr. Gyerko and nurse Princess make us feel so comfortable, I can’t say enough about their top notch care. Thanks Metro Peds!"– Sarah B.
"Today my son had his first blood draw which was a tad scary for me. With the help of Princess he handled it like a champ. It was such a smooth, easy kid friendly process and I cannot thank her enough for her skill and compassion. Thank you also to Dr. Gyerko for humoring my silly four year old and making his oofice visits fun!"– Michelle C.
"Our first visit went wonderful. Doctor Gyerko spent a lot of time with us answering all of my questions and was very thorough. His demeanor was knowledgeable, warm and kind - which made my daughter and I feel at ease right away. We would recommend him."– Lilly P.
