You want a provider who has significant training in the care of children. The good news is that both Family Medicine and Pediatric providers have the training and experience to provide that care.
Both types of specialists can provide routine preventive care, treat a variety of conditions, and care for illnesses and injuries. They’ll also make sure children are reaching developmental milestones and provide guidance on recommended childhood immunizations. If you already have a long-standing relationship with one of our Family Medicine providers, it can be an easy transition to ask them to care for your new baby once they arrive.
