The Division of Academic General Pediatrics and Primary Care at Lurie Children's offers primary care medicine and a broad range of pediatric specialties related to a child's environment and general well-being. We provide top-quality care using a collaborative approach and innovative medical technology. Our experienced, multi-disciplinary team includes board-certified attending physicians as well as specialized experts that focus on developmental and behavioral pediatrics, and nutrition evaluation.
We believe in family-centered care, which means we involve the whole family in a patient's treatment plan. From bringing family members into care plan meetings to providing support and distraction to a patient's sibling, we do our best to help fit our care within your lifestyle.
