Pediatricians with the University of Chicago Children's Medical Group provide the full spectrum of outpatient primary care services to infants, children, and adolescents throughout Chicago and northwest Indiana.
Education: An Important Part of the Doctor-Patient Relationship
We understand that pediatric care means more than treating a sick child -- it means providing answers and guidance throughout your child's growth. That's why we strive to build lasting, long-term relationships with parents so they can raise safe, healthy kids. Our pediatricians are committed to teaching both medical professionals and families. They will take the time to provide you with the information you need to make treatment decisions and better understand your child's medical condition.
