Kentucky Children’s Hospital primary care clinics 

Pediatricians and children’s health care professionals provide comprehensive services for children from birth through adolescence. Our pediatricians and all members of the pediatric team are experts in the special needs of kids. From primary care needs to specialty care, we work with families to keep kids healthy and happy. 

Plus, if your child should ever need more advanced care, we have the entire Kentucky Children’s Hospital team ready to help. 

Medical care 

All visits are by appointment only. 

Routine visits include well-child checkups, school and sports physicals, and management of chronic medical issues. Please schedule appointments in advance, and call at least 48 hours before your appointment if you need to cancel. 

If your child is ill or you have a question, please call and ask to speak with a nurse. The nurse will arrange an appointment if an office visit is needed. 

Prescription refill requests can be made by asking to speak with a member of our staff during regular clinic hours. Please allow 72 hours for us to complete the refill prescription. 

Physical examination forms and immunization certificates can be provided upon request.
