Parents taking care of children with chronic health problems need all the help they can get, and that’s what we at Sidra Medicine are here to provide. Our team is trained on the specific conditions, diseases, and disorders that affect children. We focus on both preventative care, treatment and advocate for children and their families on a local and national level. Our ambulatory clinical services accept referrals from pediatricians and family doctors looking for a second opinion from a multidisciplinary team of professionals. In addition to clinical care, the General Pediatrics team plays a major role in teaching medical students, pediatric residents and fellows.
