Pediatrics focuses on the physical, mental and emotional well-being of children at every stage of their development, from newborn to young adult. Preventive care, offered during well visits, is key in pediatrics. Babies and children often will receive immunizations during these visits. The immunization chart shows when and what vaccines your child will receive.
UNCPN practices offer well visits at each stage but also offer additional services, such as physicals for sports and school, screenings, behavioral consultations for ADD and ADHD, nutrition counseling, and minor in-office procedures. Triage phone nurses and on-site laboratories are an added convenience at our practices. We also coordinate with pediatric specialists at UNC, using the same electronic medical records system.
We provide quality and cost-effective medical care to children, at all life stages, throughout North Carolina. That includes children with chronic medical conditions and special needs. Our board-certified physicians are skilled, patient and loving. They treat your children like their own.
