Our Banner Children’s pediatricians are here for – and because of – kids. Caring for them is our calling, and our teams of experienced providers are ready to provide comprehensive, family-centered medical care that makes sense for your child. To do this, we see the whole child, including managing physical, behavioral and mental health issues, along with treating and diagnosing childhood illnesses. Childhood and parenting are among the most important and rewarding parts of the life journey, and we’re here for you and your child at every step of the way.
Depending on the needs of your child, your health care provider will let you know how often you should see a pediatrician. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends seeing your pediatrician from a few days after birth up until age 21.
Banner Health has hundreds of pediatricians in our network. We make it easy to find one near you.
