At each visit, we will conduct a physical exam, take your baby's measurements and administer any necessary immunizations. We will evaluate whether their development is on track, assess their behavior, and work with you to come up with an individualized care plan.

  • Adolescent Care

    During this unique time when children transition into adults, they experience physical, social, and psychological changes. Adolescents typically deal with issues like mental health, sports-related injuries, substance use, sexually transmitted infections, and nutrition and weight conditions. Capital Area Pediatrics offers adolescent care to assist teens and their families through this transition. Having a trusted pediatrician to guide them through this unpredictable time can ensure that they mature into healthy adults.

Identifying mental issues and treating them in kids is difficult, but we at Capital Area Pediatrics are here to assist you and your child. We provide extensive mental health services and support by assisting in making a diagnosis, providing care for common mental health conditions, making referrals to specialists, and offering basic medication management.
