Primary care for infants, children and adolescentsCall for an appointment
Duke pediatricians are specially trained to provide primary care to infants, children, and teens. Our pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners want to establish a long-term relationship with your child from the time they are born through adulthood. They keep your child healthy, ensure they reach important developmental milestones, and can coordinate your care with specialists if the need arises. As part of Duke Primary Care, our children's primary care practices are conveniently located throughout the Triangle, and accept a growing list of Duke-friendly health plans.
Children's primary care: comprehensive services near you
Our pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners offer the full spectrum of children's primary care, from the time your children are in the nursery, through early adulthood. We offer:
- Well baby and sick baby care
- Diagnosis and management of general medical, developmental, and social health concerns
- Counseling on age-appropriate issues like immunizations and developmental milestones
- Annual exams that may also include hearing and vision screenings
While our pediatricians are all trained to care for adolescents, your teen also has the option to be seen by our adolescent medicine specialists who complete added training in the complex issues that arise in early teen, teen and young adult years. They can offer guidance to your teen, and your family during these sometimes challenging years.
