General Pediatrics

Caring for the Children of the Capital Region

Our general pediatric care team offers a broad range of health care services. For expectant parents, we offer prenatal visits and bedside visits for new mothers. Newborns in our program are followed through infancy and their adolescent years with vaccinations and annual wellness visits, as well as referrals to specialty services.

We work directly with pediatric sub-specialists and surgeons at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children's Hospital—the only hospital of its kind in the region and part of the Albany Med Health System.

Our pediatric health care professionals offer treatment for developmental and behavioral health conditions and specialize in pediatric neurology, cardiology, gastroenterology and oncology/hematology, among other specialties.

All general pediatrics providers and locations can be found in the Get Care section of this page.
