Pediatric medicine is not just for babies. Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota welcomes patients throughout their college years or through age 23. Our clinicians keep up-to-date with adolescent issues including pubertal development, acne, gynecology, depression and adjustment concerns. We have dedicated adolescent clinic on our Minneapolis campus.
You want the very best for your child and that's why we recommend following the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines for well child exams and immunizations. At each exam we’ll check your child's growth, well-being and development as well as offer guidance on nutrition, sleep, safety and other important topics. These visits are a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions about your child's health. We also have answers to your questions about immunizations from why they are needed to when to schedule.
At your primary care clinic, we provide a wide variety of services that kids need during a typical childhood. And, if something is out of the ordinary, we can connect you to the rest of the services throughout the Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota system.
