About Us

Dr. Michael Morrison and Dr. Mark Tafeen began working together in 1982 at another local practice. They both desired to open a small practice that not only offered outstanding medical care, but also excellent personal care to their patients and families. In September of 1988 Dr. Morrison and Dr. Tafeen opened West Broward Pediatrics in Plantation. In March of 1992, a Weston office was added, as some families moved further west in Broward County. Since then the practice continues to grow with the addition of Dr. Alicia Salland, Dr. Paola Paré, and Nurse Practitioners Brenda Austin, Amber Badal and Kelly Stars. The practice employs an experienced and dedicated staff some who have been with us for decades. Together we take pride in caring for our patients from one generation to the next. It has been and continues to be our privilege to care for the children in our community and to be a part of their journey to adulthood.

  • "I've been bringing my 3 children here for 4 years (military family). They are simply the best. Kelly, Brenda, and the Drs are fantastic! I highly recommend them."
  • "Staff is always friendly and wonderful. All the Doctors, NP, Nurses are just a joy to see full of patience and kindness."
  • "Dr. Morrison has been our pediatrician for 25 years. He is wonderful. He is knowledgeable, thorough, and has an excellent bedside manner. Dr. Morrison truly KNOWS his patients and remembers specifics about their health history. He takes the time to build a rapport with patients and their parents. My children are grown and my youngest (nearly 21) does not want to stop seeing him!"
  • "Dr. Salland has been my children’s pediatrician for 23 years. She’s extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and has a wonderful bedside manner. When I came to South Florida 23 years ago, I asked several parents who I should use as my children’s pediatrician and her name came up on several conversations. I’m So glad we picked her as our pediatrician."
  • "Reviewing a MD office is never easy. We started going to West Broward Pediatrics after we decided our original pediatrician was not the right fit anymore. We have seen all of the MDs in the practice at both the Weston and Plantation office. I love that they have Saturday hours, as well as an evening hour one day a week. The staff is always friendly and I have never had a hard time making an appointment when my daughter is sick. We went from a single MD practice to a multi MD office and I was afraid I wouldn't get to know the MD. We use the same MD for my daughter's yearly and then can see any of the MDs for sick visits. We are definitely happy we made the change."
  • "This practice is amazing!! They are kind, caring, and think about my child and my needs. They are willing to talk through decisions and value my opinion. We will be with them a long time."
