Pediatricians: Primary Care for Kids

Our pediatricians care for infants, children and adolescents from birth to age 21.

We're focused on the specific medical and developmental needs of children. We work with families to ensure the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our young patients, and we encourage you to participate in all aspects of your child’s care.

Your Child's Pediatrician

Pediatricians are specially trained to provide medical care to children. They receive an extra three years of training beyond medical school that gives them the expertise and skill to treat your child.

The services our pediatricians provide include:

  • Routine healthcare and checkups
  • Newborn care
  • Sports and school physicals
  • Immunizations
  • Medication management
  • Healthy lifestyle and nutrition counseling
  • Allergy care and evaluation
  • Assessment of growth and development
  • Diagnosis and treatment of childhood illnesses

We also counsel families and manage chronic health problems like asthma and allergies.

If your child needs more specialized care, our pediatricians will work with the specialists here at UVA Children's Hospital. Our specialists have the expertise to provide complete care in over 30 different pediatric areas.
