Preventing disease and promoting health are important parts of health care. During well-child visits, we will discuss important issues for your child and your family. We can answer questions you have about topics including:
We provide all of the immunizations, or shots, your children need to prevent serious illnesses such as whooping cough, measles and hepatitis. We will provide you with a booklet you can use to keep track of your children’s immunizations. We hope you will bring this booklet to each visit. If your child received immunizations somewhere else, please bring a record of those shots with you. We also may need to test your child’s blood or urine to gather more information about his or her health.
We provide care to children with all types of medical problems. Our services include:
Other support services available include child and family counseling, nutrition counseling and developmental assessments. Please let the doctor or nurse know if you would like more information about these services or if you think you need services for your child or your family.

UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh is a training site for health care professionals. Your doctor may be a resident, a doctor who has completed medical school and is training to specialize in health care for children. Some of the nurse practitioners or nurses also are in training. Experienced doctors and nurses closely supervise the doctors and nurses who are in training. We strongly believe that the teaching program results in the highest quality care for you and your child. Feel free to ask to speak with the supervisor.
Children's Primary Care Oakland accepts most health insurance plans. Please check with your health insurance plan or with us to be certain that we accept yours. If your children currently are uninsured, we can help you obtain insurance for them. We use a sliding fee scale (fees charged are based on family size and income) for families who cannot obtain insurance for their children.
