Pediatrics

Also known as: Pediatrician, children's health care

When your child is sick, every decision is important. Having a pediatrician you trust is equally important. The pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners at Providence are specially trained to care for children from birth through adolescence. They stay abreast of medical advances and deliver top-notch pediatric care with compassion.

Infant, child and adolescent care includes:

  • Well-child visits
  • Sick and urgent care
  • Routine and catch-up immunizations
  • Developmental/behavioral consultations
  • Sport and school physicals
  • Vision and hearing screenings
  • Prenatal consults
  • In-hospital newborn care

Many pediatricians specialize in additional areas such as:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Integrative and holistic medicine
  • Issues associated with the onset of puberty, weight management and diabetes
  • Behavioral issues and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Developmental disorders
  • Adolescent health
  • Cardiology (conditions of the heart and blood vessels)
  • Endocrinology (conditions of the endocrine glands, which regulate hormones)
  • Gastroenterology (conditions of the digestive system)
  • Infectious disease (complex infections)
  • Nephrology (diseases of the kidney and urinary system)
  • Oncology (cancer)

Because treating a child is not the same as treating an adult, each age and stage of development requires specialized care. From routine check-ups, immunizations and minor illnesses to injuries, genetic defects and developmental disorders, our pediatricians focus on the physical, mental and emotional well-being of every patient.

We work closely with parents or other caregivers to explain diagnoses, answer questions and modify treatment when necessary to accommodate your preferred approach. Our doctors and staff enjoy watching your children grow up and helping them be as healthy and happy as possible.

Pediatricians can be board-certified through the Board of Pediatrics, which is recognized by the American Board of
