Our care approach
Pediatricians at Rush are your child’s partner in developing lifelong healthy habits, from birth through adolescence. They provide guidance to help parents foster their child’s positive mental and social health, as well as physical health.
Pediatricians provide well-child care and treatment for routine childhood ailments, such as conjunctivitis (pink eye) and ear infections, as well as school and sports physicals. They also help parents and children manage complex conditions, such as diabetes or childhood obesity.
And if your child ever needs specialized care, pediatricians work closely with other physicians at Rush University Children’s Hospital and Rush University Medical Center.
