Annapolis Pediatrics is committed to providing superior healthcare for your children. Because at least 1 in 5 children have a developmental or behavioral concern, we have dedicated staff and resources for the assessment and management of our patients and their families who have these types of concerns.
A physical exam must be completed by an Annapolis Pediatrics’ provider within the past year prior to scheduling an appointment with our Behavioral Health team.
Please ask your primary Annapolis Pediatrics’ provider if further evaluation by our Behavioral Health team would be appropriate for:
- Learning difficulties
- Attention or concentration difficulty including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Excessive worries, fears or anxieties
- Repetitive behaviors or thoughts
- Behavior problems
- Mood concerns
The providers from Annapolis Pediatrics Behavioral Health Department may refer to psychology or psychiatry when indicated. In addition, the services from the Annapolis Pediatrics Behavioral Health Department are not for emergent problems. If you believe your family member has a medical or psychiatric emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
