“The child must know that he is
a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been,
and until the end of the world there will not be another child like him”.- Pablo Casals

Welcome to
Summer Pediatrics! 

Located in Stamford, Connecticut,
Summer Pediatrics was founded by Dr. Ester Ramirez-Cepeda in 2008 to provide exceptional medical care and personal attention to infants, children, adolescents and their parents in the Fairfield County area.

We believe that the greatest value we can provide parents is to be a straightforward, practical and reliable health care advisor, helping you to keep your child healthy and happy. We have a determined focus on communication, and are always available to answer your questions. Nothing is more important to you, or to us, than the health and well-being of your child.

Dr. Ramirez-Cepeda and her staff are fully bilingual (Spanish/ English) and provide compassionate and comprehensive pediatric care for children from birth through age 18.

Make Summer Safe for Kids

Summer is a great time for kids to enjoy different indoor and outdoor activities.
Whether they are young children or teens, learn ways to keep your kids safe
and healthy while they enjoy the summer fun.

The latest news in vaccines


At Summer Pediatrics, we firmly believe in the effectiveness of vaccines to prevent serious illness and to save lives and that vaccinating children and young adults may be the single most important health-promoting intervention we perform as health care providers, and that you can perform as parents/ caregivers.

The recommended vaccines and their schedule given are the results of years and years of scientific study and data gathering on millions of children by thousands of our brightest scientists and physicians.

Finally, if you should absolutely refuse to vaccinate your child despite all our efforts, we will ask you to find another health care provider who shares your views. We do not keep a list of such providers, nor would we recommend any such physician. Please recognize that by not vaccinating you are putting your child at unnecessary risk for life-threatening illness and disability, and even death.
