About the GPC

The General Pediatric Clinic provides diagnosis, treatment and/or follow-up of children with general health problems. We provide preventive medicine, including periodic immunizations, physical examinations, positive newborn screens and child health maintenance. We also provide appropriate subspecialty referrals when necessary. This clinic is for patients who have a primary care provider in the General Pediatric Clinic; this is not a walk-in clinic.
