Children need care tailored to changing needs, from birth through young adulthood. Our pediatricians' goal is to keep your child well.

We evaluate and treat nearly every childhood disease and condition. If our physicians feel that your child needs to be treated by a specialist, Marshfield Clinic’s doctors provide the most comprehensive children's health services program in the region.

Our board-certified pediatric physicians staff some of the most respected hospitals in Wisconsin, including Marshfield Children's Hospital, one of only three children's hospitals in the state of Wisconsin.

Pediatricians care for children and teens. We specialize in keeping children well, from birth to young adulthood. 

Care begins just after birth and continues through the teen years.

Your baby needs expert care during the first months to ensure a healthy start to life. If a problem is detected, it's often easier to correct at an early age.

Our medical and development specialists are trained to recognize and treat any problem.

Below, you’ll find information about common childhood concerns and development guidelines.

At Marshfield Clinic, you can also choose care for your child from these other specialists:

  • Family Medicine – providers who care for the entire family. Patients of all ages receive total health care from a Family Medicine physician and associated team. Family Medicine emphasizes preventive care and provides acute and chronic care.

  • Med-Peds​​ – providers who care for adults as well as children and adolescents. Med-Peds physicians have the training and dedication of pediatricians and internists combined. They care for patients throughout life, managing acute and chronic illnesses at all ages. Multiple generations of a family may receive care.​
