Trusted Pediatric Primary Care
We take care of children from birth to 21 years of age for all primary care needs. We specialize in children with medical complexity in addition to well-care, sick visits and immunizations for newborns, infants, children, teens and young adults.
We are a teaching practice, using the latest evidence and education to prepare the next generation of pediatricians. This model gives our patients the most comprehensive care possible.
We are bringing primary care to a new level for all children who come through our doors.
What is a Teaching Primary Care Practice?
As a pediatric teaching hospital, our practice includes doctors who have finished medical school and are now in a three-year training program (called "residency") to become pediatricians. Nemours pediatricians (called "attending pediatricians") oversee the residents' work. Your child will have a resident who will be their primary care provider (PCP) and over the course of three years you will form good relationships with your resident and their supervising attending pediatricians.
When your resident PCP graduates, we will assign a new resident PCP with the same availability, and you can continue your relationships with the supervising attending pediatricians. You may always request a specific PCP if you would like.
Note: You can call to make appointments with them at any time.
