    At Portage Health, our team of pediatric physicians are dedicated to the health and well being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults.

    The medical issues of young people, from infancy to adulthood, include both health supervision and illness care.

    The great benefit to you and your children is that you can be certain of continuity of care. You'll find it a real comfort to know that the team you choose will be seeing your children for their well child visits and most of their sick visits. When you call to make an appointment, please let us know which clinician is your primary care provider.

    We have three clearly focused and defined goals for your family:

    • Provide excellent medical care
    • Monitor growth and development
    • Act as an advocate for you and your child

    This is why we encourage well visits. We are happy and eager to discuss your child's health, development, behavior and safety. We will perform a complete physical exam and, if necessary, help arrange specialty consultant care.

  • Tear Drop Study: A research project on infant nutrition

    Volunteers are needed for an ongoing infant nutrition study. The study is being done in partnership with Portage Health Pediatrics, Michigan Technological University and the Gerber Foundation.

    "This research could change infant care and ensure the wellbeing of the youngest members of our society," Adrienne R. Minerick, Ph.D., Michigan Tech.

    Information on the study is available on the video below. If you or someone you know has an infant, and would be willing to participate in the study, contact your Portage Health Pediatrician at (906) 483-1700, or Minerick at (906) 487-2796 or minerick@mtu.edu.
