Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine
Mayo Clinic Health System in Lake City's pediatricians get to know you and your child.
To a pediatrician, children are not small grown-ups. From birth to young adulthood, they have health, nutrition and emotional issues that are different from those of adults. A pediatrician oversees your child’s growth and development and is familiar with childhood illnesses and rare pediatric diseases. The pediatrics department at Mayo Clinic Health System in Lake City has pediatric specialists who have extra training to care for children’s health and well-being.
Our pediatricians are actively working in the community to prevent illness and provide education in the Lake City area. Finding the right health care provider for your child is an important step toward a healthy childhood. From routine exams to management of serious illnesses, your primary care provider is your consistent source of medical support.
Is your child feeling sick? We'll help you get the right care your child needs, often over the phone. Call 651-345-1100 to make an appointment or to talk to a nurse to determine if your child can be cared for at home, through an office visit, or if immediate medical attention is required. For emergencies, call 911.
