Who Are Nurse Practitioners?
Nurse practitioners are providers who practice in an advanced role delivering primary care. They have received an advanced degree in the specialty area of pediatrics and adolescence. Nurse practitioners diagnose, treat, and prescribe medications. The pediatrician and nurse practitioners work as a team.
It is important that you and your children get to know and become familiar with all of the providers over time. There are usually two providers available to see patients, allowing us to accommodate daily unscheduled sick calls. If you have not met or been seen by any one provider and would like to do so, please mention it to the receptionist when scheduling your visit.
