Pediatrics

If you're looking for a pediatrician for your child, you can trust the highly trained experts at T.J. Regional Health.

We provide a wide range of pediatric services for babies, children and teens. And we provide that care close to home.

Pediatric primary care

Our pediatricians are parents too. They know how your children want to be treated and understand how a change in a child's health can affect the entire family.

Because our pediatricians are connected to the rest of the T.J. Regional Health network of providers, they can easily refer your child to mental health or medical specialists—and stay in the loop on their treatment plan. Learn more about our pediatricians.

Here are some of our outpatient pediatric services:

  • Well-child visits. We provide regular checkups to give vaccines and health screenings and track growth and development.
  • Physicals for sports and school enrollment.
  • Chronic illness management for conditions like asthma and diabetes.
  • Behavioral health treatment for conditions such as ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder), anxiety and depression.
  • Allergy shots for chronic allergies.
  • Same-day sick care visits. When unexpected illnesses pop up, we'll help your child start feeling better as quickly as possible.
  • Health and safety advice for both kids and parents. We'll answer your questions about diet, exercise and healthy lifestyles.
