What Is Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine?

As a part of our commitment to serving patients of all ages and the varying needs of families with children, our pediatric and adolescent medicine services are performed by highly trained family doctors with expertise in treating newborns, children, and adolescents. Encompassing everything from routine physicals to referrals for specialty care, we offer this crucial area of medicine due to our belief that treating the entire family can result in better care for all.

Our Pediatric and Adolescent Services

Our pediatricians provide well-care visits, screenings, immunizations, and physical exams for school, sports, and camp. They also specialize in a full spectrum of pediatric health issues, including the following:

  • Asthma and allergies
  • Anticipatory guidance
  • Attention deficit disorder
  • Growth and development issues
  • Preparations for foreign travel (e.g. vaccinations)
  • Social, behavioral, and developmental evaluations

Our board-certified pediatricians are well-versed in diagnosing and treating these and other pediatric and adolescent health issues and trained to identify circumstances that might require more advanced care. When the need arises, our team works with your family to find appropriate specialists or subspecialists who we know and trust.
