General Pediatrics

Pediatricians in the Division of General Pediatrics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine seek to improve the lives of children and families in South Florida and beyond by providing excellent clinical care, conducting research, teaching medical students and residents, and serving as advocates for children in the community. Our practice offers exceptional health care services for children – from newborns to young adults (age 21).

As part of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, we are the only practice of our kind in South Florida. Our faculty members are among the world’s experts in fields such as behavioral and developmental pediatrics. In fact, the Miller School of Medicine has more child health professionals named to the Best Doctors in America list than any other pediatric health network in Florida.

When a pediatric specialist is needed, as part of the comprehensive healthcare services network, UHealth Pediatrics, we are able to provide patients and their families’ seamless access to our colleagues in a variety of pediatric specialties like cardiology, endocrinology, nephrology and hematology/oncology. We work as a team that includes patients, families, pediatricians, and specialists to put together a treatment plan, allowing for the best possible outcome.

In addition, our pediatric faculty members are advocates for child health in the community; by serving on the Governor’s Advisory Committees and lobbying the state government on issues surrounding child health including:
