Expert Pediatric Care, Close to Home

With locations in Biddeford, Falmouth, Kennebunk, Portland, Saco, Sanford, South Portland and Westbrook, MaineHealth Pediatrics provides a wide range of options for high-quality pediatric care in Southern Maine. From well-child visits and routine vaccinations to advanced specialty care, our pediatricians and family medicine physicians are here for you at all stages of your child’s development.

About Us

  • Preventive Care: Annual well child visits help us monitor your child’s growth, development and behavior; screen for early signs of disease; and administer immunizations to prevent serious disease.
  • Emotional Care: We offer screening tools and resources to identify and help parents treat the behavioral and/or emotional problems of the children and/or the family.
  • Specialized Services: We offer a range of services for the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents with chronic illnesses, including but not limited to, asthma, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obesity.
  • Adolescent Health: We provide preventive guidance for teens and parents by evaluating and treating concerns such as breast health issues, menstrual problems, genital infections or pain, and contraceptive needs.
  • Medication Management: We manage medications for many chronic conditions.
    • It is very important that the physician who prescribed your child's medication also be the one to refill this medication. Because your child’s physician may be out of the office when your child is in need of a medication refill, it is important that you call our office when your child has one week’s worth of medication left and that you keep your regularly scheduled appointments with your physician.

MaineHealth Pediatrics recommends that all children receive their childhood vaccinations based on the vaccination schedule outlined by the Centers of Disease Control, American Academy of Pediatrics, and Maine Vaccines for Children Program.

Well-child visits and childhood vaccinations are essential to child health. Children who are not protected by vaccines are more likely to get diseases like measles and whooping cough. These diseases are extremely contagious and can be very serious, especially for babies and young children. Learn more.
