Pediatric care at Studer Family Children’s Hospital

Board-certified pediatricians at Studer Family Children’s Hospital provide primary care for infants, children and teens. Each appointment starts with a conversation between you, your child and your child’s pediatrician. We take the time to get to know your child and family. Then, we deliver care that’s right for your child. Our pediatricians care for the whole child, including newborn care, regular checkups and vaccinations, care when your child is sick, and care for mental and emotional health. And if your child needs advanced specialty care, your child’s pediatrician connects you with the right pediatric specialists at Studer Family Children’s Hospital. Our pediatricians work closely with pediatric surgeons, GI doctors, pediatric cardiologists, neurologists, therapists, and more – so that your child’s care is always connected.

Prenatal consultations with your baby’s pediatrician

If you are an expecting parent, you may want to choose your baby’s pediatrician before they are born. We provide prenatal consultations so that you can select the right pediatrician and care team for your new family. Together, we can discuss any concerns you may have and what to expect once your baby is born. And you can start a trusted relationship with a pediatrician that continues as your child grows.

Primary care for children

Your child’s pediatrician is often your first stop for getting preventive and ongoing care for your child. Pediatric primary care includes:

  • Annual well-child visits
  • Physicals for school, camp and sports
  • Sick child visits
  • Mental and emotional health care
  • Referrals to pediatric specialists
  • Management of chronic conditions
  • Vaccinations and screenings
  • Newborn care
  • Prenatal consultations

Same-day and next-day appointments when your child is sick

If it’s not an emergency and your child’s doctor’s office is open, that’s the right place to start for minor illnesses. Schedule online or call to ask about same-day or next-day visits.

Talk to your child’s pediatrician about any concerning symptoms, such as:

  • Body aches or chills
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear pain
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Rash
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Sore throat
  • Stomach pain
  • Vomiting

If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911.
