Dean Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine

Dean's Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine specialists (pediatricians) provide comprehensive health care for children from birth through adolescence (up to age 21).

What's the Difference Between a Pediatrician and a Family Physician? 

A pediatrician has had specific training and experience solely focused on the physical, emotional and social health of children from birth through adolescence (up to age 21). Additionally, since pediatric providers only take care of children, we feel that the staff and environment is more conducive to children's needs.

Family physicians focus on care for the whole family, which may include both children and adults. For more information, read our Tips on Choosing a Dean Primary Care Provider article.
