Welcome to WMed's Medicine-Pediatrics Clinic
Our Medicine-Pediatrics Clinic team provides a broad spectrum of general well and sick care for infants, children, adolescents, and adults of all ages. Med-Peds physicians are trained in both Pediatrics and Internal Medicine and provide the same range of medical services as other internists and pediatricians. Care is provided in an office setting, as well as for patients who are hospitalized. Med-Peds physicians treat acute and long-standing illnesses. They provide counseling designed to help patients prevent illness in the future. The WMed Medicine-Pediatrics Clinic believes in immunizations for children and adults as a protection against life-threatening diseases.
Our Medicine-Pediatrics Clinic has undergone a transformation to a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model. A patient-centered medical home is a way to deliver coordinated and comprehensive primary care to participants of all ages — children, youth and adults. It is a partnership between individuals and families within a healthcare setting, which allows for more efficient use of resources and time to improve the quality of outcomes for all involved through care provided by a continuity care team.
