Signs, Symptoms and Illnesses We See
In addition to providing well-child, preventive care like immunizations (vaccines) and health screenings, we treat children with a variety of common symptoms, illnesses and conditions, such as those listed below.
Does your child have a sore throat or abdominal pain, or a headache that just won’t go away? You can review possible causes (and remedies) using the American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP) symptom checker.
At Nemours, we’re committed to helping your family grow up healthy and strong. For trusted insights about everything from the common cold and complex medical conditions to major milestones and emotional wellness at every age, KidsHealth.org (created by Nemours) has the information you need. And it’s available online anytime, so it’s there when you need it most.

Making Your Appointment
Nemours duPont Pediatrics provides primary pediatric care for newborns, children and teens throughout Delaware Valley, southeast Pennsylvania and South New Jersey. Our physicians and nurse practitioners see patients for primary care medical needs like well-child check-ups, sick child care and immunizations in a family-centered environment.
Children should be seen for “well-child” check-ups to make sure they’re growing up healthy at:
- 1 to 3 days after hospital discharge
- 2 weeks
- 1 month
- 2 months
- 4 months
- 6 months
- 9 months
- 12 months (1 year)
- 15 months
- 18 months
- 2 years
- annually after that
At each visit, we’ll check your child’s growth, development, overall health and give any recommended routine immunizations. It's all part of the excellent primary care pediatrics you can count on us to deliver.
Check out the Your Child’s Checkup Sheets from Nemours’ KidsHealth to find out what to expect at the visit and as your child grows, from birth through age 21.
We offer free, informational appointments for expectant parents trying to make a choice about their baby’s primary care pediatrician. This is a great time to meet our doctor and staff, see our facility, and learn more about our practice. Call us to schedule your appointment.
Therapists from Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children also see patients who are referred to us by primary care family physicians, pediatricians and referring specialists for physical medicine and rehabilitation services (physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and feeding and swallowing).
When you call to make your appointment, we’ll first pre-register your child, collecting information such as:
- your child’s name and address
- date of birth
- parent phone numbers (home and cell)
- primary care physician/referring physician contact information (if needed)
- pharmacy preference
- insurance information (including Medicaid or other assistance program)
Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment so we have plenty of time to register your child in our system.

- medical and pharmacy insurance cards
- preferred pharmacy name and phone number
- names and dosage of all medications, including over-the-counter medication, your child is currently taking
- guardianship and custody papers, if a legal guardian rather than a parent accompanies your child
