Children are not small adults. As board-certified pediatricians, we are trained to understand this critical difference. From the moment we meet your child, and through every encounter, our pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners listen to you, address your child's concerns, and answer your questions. From birth through the transition to adulthood, we address your child's medical, psychological, and social needs with compassion and understanding.

Referrals to Pediatric Specialists
If your child needs specialty care, we can direct you to Duke Children's pediatric specialists. As part of a nationally ranked medical center, they have access to the latest research, technology, and medical advances, many of which are discovered at Duke Health. Our pediatricians coordinate your child's care if they need referrals for weight management concerns; chronic health problems; or special developmental, learning, or mental health needs.

Schedule appointments, view lab results, request prescription refills, communicate with your provider, and pay bills using our secure patient portal, Duke MyChart. Our electronic medical record system is also accessible by every Duke doctor in every Duke facility, so your child's care will always be coordinated.
Adolescent Medicine Specialists for Your Teen
While our pediatricians are all trained to care for adolescents, your teen also has the option to be seen by our adolescent medicine specialists. They complete additional training in the complex issues that arise in the teen and young-adult years. Such issues might include pubertal or menstrual problems, stress and mood difficulties, risky behavior concerns, eating and body-image issues, and questions about relationships and sexuality. Our adolescent medicine specialists can offer expert guidance to your teen and your family during these sometimes challenging years.
