Family Medicine Practitioners for Your Entire Family
Our family physicians establish a long-term relationship with you and your family, focused on keeping you and your children healthy and preventing illness. They offer well-child visits for developmental screenings, immunizations, and parental guidance to help your child meet growth milestones.
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.
Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine
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.
