Duke Children’s Primary Care is dedicated to providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art medical care that promotes the healthy development and well-being of our patients and their families.
Our services range from routine health screenings for childhood diseases and immunizations, to coordinating individualized care if your child is referred to a specialist or admitted to Duke Children's Hospital. Our goal is to ensure that health care services continue uninterrupted as your child moves from infancy to adolescence to adulthood, up to the age of 25.
All of our pediatricians are members of the faculty at the Duke University School of Medicine and are board-certified. Some of our physicians have interests and expertise in certain pediatric specialties, such as adolescent medicine, integrative medicine or sports medicine. Some of our physicians exclusively pursue clinical, educational and advocacy activities. Others are more heavily involved in primary care-related research. Some are full-time, some are part-time. All are committed to providing the best possible care for your child.
Our dedicated staff is experienced in all aspects of pediatric primary care, including:
- routine well-child exams, including school, sports, and camp physicals
- sick child visits
- preventive care and health education
- referrals for children with chronic health problems or special developmental, learning, and mental health needs
- prenatal visits
- lactation services
- nurse advice line
