Meet the team
The Children’s Minnesota primary care team includes pediatricians, nurses and medical assistants who specialize in care for children, teens and young adults. Some clinics also have pediatric nurse practitioners, pediatric physician assistants, social workers, psychologists, care coordinators and lactation consultants. Helpful support staff members assist with scheduling appointments, billing and checking you in when you arrive.
Primary care doctors work closely with specialists, such as allergists and speech pathologists. A pediatrician may also refer patients to other programs and services in the Children’s Minnesota network. For example, if a primary care doctor suspects that a teen has an eating disorder, the doctor may refer the teen to the Children’s Minnesota Center for the Treatment of Eating Disorders.
