Pediatric Primary Care

The General Pediatrics Program at Vanderbilt improves the health of children and families, especially those with higher risk for poor health outcomes, with comprehensive, family-based, coordinated care.

Our services include primary care clinics in Middle Tennessee and Kentucky, specialized clinics at Children's Hospital focused on child behavior, and referral services for families involved in international adoption. We also direct the Newborn Nursery at Vanderbilt to give families with new infants a healthy start with the best pediatric care.

Through these services we can identify individual needs and treatment options. If your child needs a special doctor, we can make referrals. Our goal is to work with you and specialists to create the best care plan for your child and family.
