Convenient, Comprehensive Pediatric Care
AdventHealth Medical Group pediatricians have decades of combined experience treating infants, adolescents and teenagers here in Central Florida. We provide dedicated primary care to kids while partnering with parents to ensure optimal physical, developmental and emotional health in every patient.
Preventive Care and Personalized Treatment
Our focus on whole-person wellness means our pediatricians can help with more than just the physical illnesses and injuries that accompany childhood. We're also experts in assessing and treating the emotional development and behavioral conditions that kids can experience as they grow from infants to toddlers, and from tweens to teens. In fact, regular well-child visits with your pediatrician are an important time for evaluating developmental milestones of all kinds. They’re also a perfect opportunity for you to bring up any concerns you may have about your child's eating, sleeping, toileting or learning behaviors.

For ADD and ADHD, Kids Deserve the Best Care
If you’ve ever wondered if your child might have attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you’re not alone. Kids are naturally full of energy, and it can be challenging to get them to listen and focus — especially while attending school virtually.
Common signs and symptoms of ADD and ADHD to keep an eye out for include:
- Daydreaming often
- Difficulty following multi-step instructions
- Easily distracted by external stimuli
- Inability to focus for long periods of time
- Poor impulse control
- Poor school performance
- Poor sleep habits
- Resistant to activities that require sustained mental effort
- Unable to sit still, or constantly fidgeting
Our expert pediatricians are here to help and specialize in diagnosing and treating children with ADD and ADHD. Make your appointment today.
