Clinical Services

Our physicians provide patient care from birth to age 21 at multiple locations throughout Miami/Dade County. They perform well-baby checkups, care for all common problems, and provide a medical home for our patients.

Your child’s pediatrician is your child’s primary health care provider. As such, he/she is there to monitor your child’s overall health, treat most of the illnesses and injuries your child may encounter, and is often the “front door” when specialty medical care is needed. When necessary, your pediatrician may refer your child to a UHealth pediatric specialist. As part of the UHealth System, your pediatrician will work hand in with the pediatric specialist to help guide your child’s care.

The most common reasons children need to see their pediatrician include:

  • Health management (in the form of well-baby visits and childhood checkups)
  • School/sports physicals
  • Immunizations
  • Diagnosis and treatment of acute illness
  • Diagnosis, treatment and management of certain chronic illnesses
  • Obtain referrals for specialty medical care

All of our pediatricians are Board Certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics, and work to promote and maintain the health and well-being through excellent family-centered care. Many of our pediatricians have special interests and certification, including:

  • Lactation consultation
  • Complex medical conditions

  • Twin deliveries
  • Genetic medical problems
  • Evaluating and caring for children with ADHD
  • Learning disabilities and school problems
