"Pediatric primary care practices have taken on the responsibility to be the medical home for children from birth through young adulthood. These settings offer a consistent, trusted,and supportive context in which parents and children are welcomed and encouraged to raise a wide range of concerns and to access a variety of preventive and treatment approaches. Almost all children in the United States have a primary care medical home and see a physician frequently during their first few years—for monitoring health, growth, and development, and for providing parental guidance."
