You want a doctor who knows you and your child. Someone who can follow your child’s physical, mental and emotional health as your child grows.

Your care team includes board-certified pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners. We offer complete medical care for your child including routine, acute (sudden and serious) and long-term problems, shots and school or sports physicals.

Take the time to choose a doctor you trust, and who will see your child for routine visits and well-child checks. Your primary care doctor can also refer you to pediatric specialists.

This symptom checker is designed to help you determine if your child needs to see a doctor. If you have any questions about the guidance it offers, call your pediatrician.*

For problems like cuts, please call your nearest walk-in clinic.

  • We have specialists in allergy who care for children.  

    Visit allergy, asthma and immunology

  • Asthma is a long-term problem with the tubes that carry air to the lungs. The inner lining of these tubes can swell, and the muscles around them can tighten, making them narrower. 

    Asthma can change over time; sometimes it may be worse, sometimes better. You may not always have symptoms. When asthma is well cared for, your child should be able to do everything someone without asthma can do.

    Symptoms of asthma include:

    • Wheezing
    • Coughing, especially at night
    • Shortness of breath
    • Tightness in the chest

  • It’s normal for children to have challenges. But normal problems can turn into ongoing struggles that affect every part of your child's life. We offer both short- and long-term care to help your child overcome these challenges.

    • Won’t go to school

    • Disorganized or does poorly at school
    • Being teased or bullied
    • Trouble making or keeping friends

  • Behavioral health issues can start in childhood. If a child doesn't get the care they need, behavioral health issues could follow them into adulthood.

    Depression and anxiety (worrying more than normal) can cause problems in school or social isolation. Behavioral health issues can even lead to suicide.

    Our collaborative care program can be an extra tool to help if your child or teen struggles with their behavioral health.

    With our collaborative care program, your doctor works closely with a care manager and behavioral health specialist on a care team. Your care team makes sure your child gets the right care. Your care team also watches for any behavioral health changes in your child.  

    Your child will get the best results by taking an active role in their care. This approach puts your child at the center of their care.

    Your child can ask questions, raise concerns and say what is and isn't working at every step. Your care team gives your child extra support to help them reach their health goals. 

    What to expect:

    During your child’s visit with their doctor, they can expect screenings and conversations to look for issues like depression or anxiety. 

    Your child's doctor may talk about our collaborative care program. If your child's doctor brings up the program, they will make a note of it in your child's health record. The collaborative care program will also be told. 

    If the collaborative care program is right for your child, a care manager will sign them up. A care manager may see your child to talk about the program at the same time as their doctor appointment. 

    A care manager can also help with your child's overall care, including tracking medicine and making care decisions. 

    Our collaborative care program can support patients on state-funded insurance and those who need short-term support. Talk to your doctor and your health plan to find out what's best for your child.

    The medical history will include questions such as:

    • Heart health history and symptoms
    • Illnesses your child had when they were younger
