Primary Care - Lurie Children’s Pediatrics
Our Primary Care physicians are here for your child whether they are healthy or sick, offering comprehensive primary care services including well child check-ups, sick visits, back-to-school physicals, immunizations, and more. With a focus on prevention, growth, development, and chronic disease management, we believe in caring for the whole child, partnering with parents and caregivers to help them support their child’s health needs. Additionally, our providers specialize in providing primary care for children with complex medical and behavioral needs. Social work and mental health support is also available.
Educating the next generation of pediatricians is central to our mission. Attending physicians provide teaching and mentorship for medical students, fellows, resident physicians, and other healthcare professionals in training. They participate in resident conferences, fellow workshops, and a variety of other educational events. Our faculty are consistently recognized by trainees and awarded for their excellence in teaching and mentorship.
Advocating on behalf of children and pediatricians is a priority for faculty and staff in the Division. Our goal is to discover ways to go beyond the individual clinical experiences we have with our patients. We work to identify solutions, help change community norms, and support public health policies that protect children’s health and well-being.
Your support is vital in helping us continue to make a difference in the lives of patients and families. Lurie Children's relies on philanthropic funding to enhance its programs, services and research for children. To learn more, please e-mail the Ann & Robert H.
