Teaching the next generation of caregivers.

Pediatric Primary Care

Your child’s primary care provider is the person you can count on to provide preventive health care, help you teach your child healthy behaviors, diagnose and treat common medical conditions, and even offer parenting advice and support.

When you choose UNC Children’s, you know your child is getting specialized care from an expert in the physical, emotional, and social development of children and adolescents. Our board-certified pediatricians and pediatric residents will partner with your family to promote a healthy lifestyle and treat the physical, emotional, and developmental needs of your growing child or teen.

The UNC Children’s Primary Care Clinic is located at 1512 E. Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and offers:

  • In-clinic lactation specialists
  • In-clinic Spanish interpreters
  • Access to free transit via Chapel Hill buses
  • On-site lab draws with nearby pharmacy and radiology services through UNC Hospitals
