Welcome to WMed's Pediatrics Clinic
Our Pediatrics Clinic team provides a broad spectrum of general well- and sick-child care, (birth through 21 years) including immunizations, monitoring general physical and emotional growth, motor skill development, sports medicine (including participation evaluations and evaluation of common sports injuries), child abuse evaluations, and psychosocial or behavioral assessment. WMed Pediatrics believes in immunizations as a protection against preventative disease processes.
Our Pediatrics Clinic is a patient-centered medical home (PCMH). A patient-centered medical home is a way to deliver coordinated and comprehensive primary care to our infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. It is a partnership between individuals and families within a healthcare setting, which allows for a more efficient use of resources and time to improve the quality of outcomes for all involved through care provided by a continuity care team.
